Raising a Child Who Respects Differences

It’s not easy being a kid. It’s not easy being a parent, either. Teaching diversity acceptance and self-acceptance can be a full-time job.

To make your job a little easier, I have developed a wide range of activity books to help encourage and foster diversity, tolerance and inclusion amongst kids from all walks of life.

    I think this is amazing. Any tips for kids or parents on how to deal with cyber bullying?

      1. Keep the computer in a common area of the home. Do not allow it in your children's bedrooms. Monitor their online usage.

      2. Talk regularly and specifically with your children about online issues. Let them know they can come to you for help if anything is inappropriate, upsetting, or dangerous.

      3. Set time limits, explain your reasons for them, and discuss rules for online safety and Internet use. Ask your children to contribute to establishing the rules; then they'll be more inclined to follow them.

      4. Tell your children not to respond to any cyberbullying threats or comments online. However, do not delete any of the messages. Instead, print out all the messages, including the e-mail addresses or online screen names of the cyberbully. You will need the messages to verify and prove there is cyberbullying.

      5. Don't overreact by blaming your children. If they are being bullied, be supportive and understanding. 

      6. Don't underreact by telling your children to "shrug it off" or just deal with the bullying. The emotional pain of being bullied is very real and can have long-lasting effects. Don't tease them about it or respond with a "kids will be kids" attitude.
