Survey Says: You Can't Replace Dad

Survey Says: You Can't Replace Dad

Last month, new research from the Institute for Family Studies demonstrated, once again, how important fathers are, especially for boys.

In most cases, children who are not prepared to confront such behavior feel threatened and helpless by a bully’s malicious behavior, especially when they protect themselves with the anonymity of the Internet. Help your children combat cyberbullying and its dramatic effects by teaching them easy safety measures and tactics.
