Cyber Bullying: App Allows Parents To See What Their Child is Posting on Social Media

Halt AppThis is a new App that allows parents to see what they child is posting, and liking  on social media.  It is especially appropriate for parents when their children first begin using social media to allow parents to keep an eye on what is being posted.

The designer William Stark worked with Kirk Smalley from the Stand of the Silent Foundation to produce the anti-cyber-bullying application. Smalley is the father in the 2011 documentary “Bully,” whose 11-year-old son committed suicide after being cyber-bullied.

The app shows the parent what your child has posted, what their likes are, what their statuses have been, and what they are tagged in. It allows Parents to have much needed conversations with their child about what is and isn’t appropriate.
