What parents are saying"My ten-year-old daughter and her friends love to share their photos with each other online. I try to see which friends she accepts and chats with. I never expected that one of her own friends (after a big fight) would be the one to bully her. She didn't tell me about it for a couple of weeks but I noticed she was acting upset. I am so grateful Cyber Savvy to help her work through her feelings.""So many books out there teach us how to protect our kids from the Internet. I'm glad there's a book now to help them after being bullied online. We simply cannot monitor every minute of our child's day. Thank you so much for this workbook.""My eleven-year-old has always taken everything close to heart. He's very sensitive. This activity book has helped him see bullying behavior as not being about him at all, and I find that he's much more generous in his compassion than I ever would be for the kid who was mean to him online. I've learned as much as he has."
