  • Expert advice on Cyberbullying, Cyber-Aggression and how parents / guardians can support teenager
  • Debate on Parent and Student Charter Bill 2016

“Cyberbullying is a big issue for parents,” says Rebecca Hemeryck, PRO of the National Parents Council post primary. “Many parents don’t know how the apps teenagers use nowadays work. While most parents would be familiar with how to use Facebook and Messenger app, our children are on SnapChat, Tinder, MeetMe…. the list is endless. And it is hard to keep up!”
