Cyberbullying is a serious challenge for the social site companies and parents. Laws are being introduced but authorities have failed to curb cyberbullying and reduce the rate of teens being bullied online.


Cheating in Relationships

There is a dire need that we take measures and steps to handle the use of social sites and reduce its effects. Parents should play a role in this regard. They can use parental control options like a hidden spy app like what is offered on this site to monitor the online activities of teens. Such tools will come in handy as they can help to reduce the screen time of the kids as well as restrict access to adult and porn content. All parents should think about such options before it gets too late to control the kids.
