In 2018, we launched an .  Bullying is bad for all and their actions must be stopped through education, instruction, training and discipline.

Bullying is defined as “an intentional course of conduct which is reasonably likely to intimidate, emotionally abuse, slander, threaten or intimidate another person and which serves no legitimate purpose”.

I wanted the foundation (sabafamilyfoundations.com) to focus on this because I was bullied as a child.  I was silent through it all and I brought my child up to be cognizant of others and to never be mean to her peers.

I never ever dreamed that my child would get taunted and bullied.  That changed everything for me.  Now it was different.

When I approached the parents of the child who bullied my little one, they never wanted to acknowledge it.  When pushed further – the response from the mother was

“Thanks for that fascinating analysis from the ever-absent mother. Great for a laugh.

You can talk until you’re blue in the face, but no-one is listening, so please, knock yourself out!”

That made me realize this was a problem for both the bullied and the bullies.

People don’t know and don’t want to work together.

Thus, I decided we must push harder for dialogue.

Because I strongly feel parents are the root of this issue and we need to be open to helping both sides understand and acknowledge to really make a difference for the future of all our kids.

We are working together with the ministry of health and education to make a better place for our children.

Thank you for your support.

Warm regards,

What Europe is doing about cyber bullying

The problem with cyberbullying is that information remains online for a long time and can be difficult to remove. New EU data protection rules introduced a ‘right to be forgotten’ that allows victims to request the erasure of their personal data. There is no specific EU law on cyberbullying but some aspects are covered, for instance expressions of racism or xenophobia or sexual harassment of a victim under 18. Europe is also funding action on the ground to prevent violence against women, children and young people (including online). To protect children and teenagers and arm them with the skills and tools they need to use the internet safely and responsibly, the EU has adopted a Better Internet for Kids strategy and co-funds Safer Internet Centres in all EU countries (forming a pan-European network – Insafe). Each national centre operates a helpline, providing advice and assistance for children and teenagers confronted with harmful online content or conduct.
