Cyber bullying is really serious stuff. We've seen a lot of cases come public in the last two years of the effects of cyber bullying. We've seen kids die from it. For some reason, people are fearless online. They will say awful things and they will say it with no reservations. The first thing you need to tell your child about cyber bullying, is the effects of it. They need to understand the effect of it. It kills. It does. At least, it's going to harm. If a child feels like he or she is being bullied, the first thing they need to know is that they can come to you as a parent. They have to feel comfortable to report it. Secondly, you as a parent, you have to immediately escalate it. Tell that other kid's parent what is going on, tell your school, tell your church; whatever you have to do vigilantly to insure that your child is protected. That it is known. It is out that the bullying is taking place.

Technology Expert

Jonathon Fishman is passionate about technology.  Not for what it does, but for where it can lead you. The idea for his company, Ben’s Ranch, struck Jonathon when his stepmother asked his advice in buying a computer for her grandson. She didn't care about the brand or specs, she simply wanted to know how it would help her Grandson.  Jonathon realized that technical support was centered around rescue, repair and complicated conversations. He believed that the conversation should start with how does technology empower the use. Ben's Ranch became the industry standard for personal and small business IT by shifting the conversation repair to usability. Jonathon is happily married and the father of a seven-year old and a nine-year old.
