Description of Contents
The site “Click Safe” aims to inform parents on how to use the Internet and to offer them online assistance.

A section of the site is dedicated to cyberbullying. It suggests possible reactions and points to care for to parents confronted to this phenomenon in their family.
The cyberbullying section is made up of two parts: animation videos featuring situations of online bullying and concrete advice on how to manage those situations. The purpose is to give parents keys to understand the phenomenon and know how to react.
The educational purpose of this section is to make parents understand that cyberbullying is really a form of bullying and has to be addressed as such
Concretely, the cyberbullying sections features 4 videos that last between 2 and 4 minutes.

Each video features bullying with a particular perspective: the teen who is bullied, the young bully and the young witnesses.

The videos are simples, easy to understand. They come with educational advice that appear in a banner: paying attention to distress signals, keeping calm and taking one’s child seriously, being interested and asking questions, searching solutions together, without empty promises.

Under the videos are suggested concrete actions that will contribute to the problem solution (blocking the address of the author, contacting a mediator, keeping the messages as a proof …) as well as a helpline to help parents contacting specialists.

Access to a longer version of advice is also offered. In this section, the different sides of cyberbullying are analysed and dissected

Clic Safe is specifically addressed to parents, but to children, teenagers, educational teams and any citizen interested by the problem.

This site was created by Child Focus “Officially recognised non-profit foundation for missing and sexually abused children”, active in Belgium and internationally since 1998 (following the “Dutroux affair”).

Child Focus also created “Webetic”, informative, didactic and educational site for parents, on how to use the internet and multimedia technologies safely (practical information, tips and tricks, prevention advice, concrete examples ...). This site gives parents the keys to a safe browsing.
This site includes among other a detailed section on cyberbullying: exemplary video, definition of the phenomenon, advice, further information ...

The videos and advice on the websites of Child Focus are good practice and advice to share in other European countries. They are available for free online.
