After a Florida teenager jumped to her death because of cyberbullying, WFMY News 2 wanted to know how can parents get through to their kids.
Professional counselor, Dr. Nannette Funderburk said it's important for kids to know their parent(s) will back them up.
"Parents want to make sure that throughout their course of parenting, that they are being truthful with their children," said Dr. Funderburk. "It needs to be across the board so in [bullying] situations, they know that what you are saying is honest."
If you suspect your child has been bullied, the first step is to report it to your child's school.
