Small builds for big conversations: cyberbullying

Tools to help you talk to your child about cyberbullying

If your child uses messaging apps, plays video games or watches videos online, they might have encountered some kind of cyberbullying. Most children will really benefit from talking to a parent or a trusted grown-up about their experience, but often children don’t know how to start, or what to say. They’re not alone, many parents don’t know how to approach the subject either.

Our ‘Build and Talk Cyberbullying’ activity gives you the tools to have a relaxed and useful conversation with a child about online bullying as you tackle some fun and simple builds together.

Even if they haven’t encountered bullying themselves the activity will help you both identify bullying behaviours, and know what to do if it happens to them or a friend.
