WHAT'S DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN UPSTANDER AND BYSTANDER?
MY CHILD IS BEING BULLIED BUT WONT TELL ME ABOUT IT
Getting your child to open up to you requires consistently asking them about what is going for them, do it daily, and don’t be specific about the bullying, when they feel more comfortable, they will open up. Also, institute a new rule that all phones are out of bedrooms at night, as this is when most cyberbullying occurs.
IS IT OK FOR MY CHILD TO CHAT TO STRANGERS ONLINE?
If you wouldn’t open your front door to strangers and let them play in your child’s room, monitor who they are talking to online.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY CHILD IS BEING GROOMED ONLINE?
Take screenshots of messages, save images or videos and report it immediately to the child protection authority in your jurisdiction!
MY CHILD PLAYS WITH STRANGERS ONLINE, IS THAT OK?
Unless you have made sure that your child can only talk with certain users who you have approved are their friends, or you have set up a private chat channel, you have to assume they are open to being contacted by unsupervised adults, which is a risk that is not worth taking.

Their webinars cover topics that are so informative, interesting and helpful. The online world is a black hole and unless you’re involved in that world (be it work or pleasure) you are none the wiser to what really goes on. Be in Touch opens your eyes to what can/is really happening out there and offers the guidance and assistance in putting the necessary measures in place to keep your children safe. Their help doesn’t end at the webinar either. They respond to emails quickly, are friendly and offer further guidance, tips and assistance to questions that have been asked. I definitely recommend Be in Touch.

First time to attend Be in Touch webinar on digital parenting, as a father of an 8- and 5-years old boys I was not really aware of how dangerously a digital world without control can affect my kids. I have now understood that I need to communicate with them and have agreement with gaming, as to how long and what games are safer for them. screen time is very important. I will strongly recommend any parent to follow this page for their children digital well-being.
