95 percent of teens between the ages of 12-17 are now online—and one in five of them say they’ve been bullied in the last year, either in person, online, by text, or by phone, says a new study by the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project. 

Many children who are victims of cyberbullying do not inform their parents that this is going on.  What can a parent do? 

Val Ridad, Community Safety Assistant for the Dublin Police Services, will present  “Internet Safety  – A Presentation for Parents,” a program on protecting your children from Internet predators, cyberbullying, sexting and digital reputation problems on Saturday, November 19th, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. in the Dublin Library Program Room.  This free program will be held in the Dublin Library Program Room.  There will be time for a question-and-answer session at the end of the program.
