It's Anti Bullying Week - so here's a list of ways to help your child if you think they are a victim of cyber bullying.

1 First on our list is a new mobile phone app which gives parents of bullied children the chance to recover abusive messages and email threads.

Even if messages sent by bullies have been deleted, the Enigma Recovery app means parents can still access them so they can approach the necessary people.

2 Make it a topic of conversation in general chats day-to-day. Making your child aware of cyber bullying and give examples of things you have heard in the news will help them feel less isolated. Encourage your child that keeping this to themselves is unhealthy.

3 Have an electronic curfew for your child. If they are in their bedroom on their laptop all night this is asking for trouble.

4 If you believe your child is being bullied, ask them how you can help. Be calm.

Suggest they talk to someone else if they don’t want to talk to you. Don’t judge them. Remember it’s brave of them to open up to you.

It is estimated that 5.43 million young people in the UK have experienced cyberbullying.

The NSPCC has revealed that there were over 12,000 counselling sessions with young people who talked to Childline about online issues last year.
