We live in a generation of technology that words are literally killing our children.
75% of kids admit to visiting a website to bash another student. Only 1 in 10 cyberbully victims will report the abuse to a parent or trusted adult. And cyberbullying victims are 2 to 9 times more likely to take their own lives.
It has to stop - and it starts with us.
Amber Child Safety, the world's most powerful system for protecting children online—together with its Cyberbully Task Force—announced the availability of Cyberbully Savvy, a first-of-its-kind digital toolkit containing expert answers, advice and resources for anyone affected by cyberbullying.
The kit includes never-before-seen incisive commentary and practical advice from esteemed contributors, including Dr. Alissa Sklar, Jayne Hitchcock, Dr. Jerry Weichman, Dr. Joel Haber, Dr. Rina Gupta, Shawn Edgington, Tad Camp, Christopher Shannon, Lauren Parsekian and Molly Thompson.
As further evidence of Amber Child’s Safety commitment to the cause, the company has pledged to donate $1 for every download of the kit, up to an unprecedented $1 million donation to cyberbullying charities. Two versions of the kit are available – a shorter-form Parent Edition and a full-length Educator & Advocate Edition.
Both are available for download free of charge at www.cyberbullysavvy.com.
“We’ve all seen the headlines and read the tragic stories of the victims of cyberbullying, but there’s a surprising lack of awareness on the intricacies of this subject,” said Darryl Hicks, president & CEO of Amber Child Safety, and dad of three himself. “We wanted extensive commentary from the leaders and experts in the industry, which is what prompted us to pull together this amazing Cyberbully Task Force. The insight they have provided gives our kit a unique and invaluable opportunity to reach parents, educators and kids themselves, to hopefully make an impact on this horrible epidemic.”
Cyberbully Savvy incorporates actionable feedback from leading experts in the developing field of cyberbullying education. Looking beyond just the conventional wisdom of their colleagues, these individuals have supplied some of the most forward-thinking insights on how to identify and put a stop to cyberbullying. Topics include identifying the signs of cyberbullying, addressing misconceptions of parents and teachers on the issue, and discovering effective ways to communicate with not only the victims, but also the perpetrators of cyberbullying.
