Parental controls can help prevent cyberbullying
Around 1 in 10 children experience cyberbullying from people they don’t know. This number increases to nearly 2 in 5 for children with vulnerabilities, according to our research.
Compared to other harms, this number is quite low. However, the impact of cyberbullying is much higher when compared with other online harms. In fact, 55% of children who have experienced cyberbullying from strangers say it has a high impact.
As such, setting parental controls is a good way to prevent cyberbullying, especially from strangers. You can limit who can contact your child, how your child can communicate and what sites or apps they can access.
