Digital solutions platform Globe intensifies its commitment to online safety by enjoining the academe, mental health professionals, parents and guardians, and other key partners to protect Filipino children against cyberbullying.
Due to the pervasiveness of bullying on digital platforms, Globe noted the need for parents and caregivers to understand their role in keeping children safe online.
The company has launched the Make It Safe portal, where users can find the A-Z of Cyberbullying glossary. The glossary is buildable, and anyone can add words to inform other parents on terms to watch out for.
Parents can get more guidance on helping children be safe and responsible online through parent-focused Globe Digital Thumbprint Program (DTP) e-modules on the microsite. DTP promotes digital citizenship and cyber safety among the youth.
Globe further equips parents with the proper knowledge to address the issue through its partnership with two of the most influential online parenting communities on Facebook: Glam-O-Mommas, a community with 44,500 active members owned by model and TV personality Amanda Grifﬁn-Jacob; and Usapang Nanay, a community of 519,000 members, run by the husband-and-wife duo of Mommy GL and Daddy Ranilo Guardiano.
It has also started sharing its new #makeITsafePH campaign materials on cyberbullying to partners in the academe, showing them to teachers and parents during parent seminars.
Globe also understands that violence against children, such as cyberbullying, has devastating effects on the physical and emotional well-being of young people. Because of this, Globe has partnered with its telemedicine platform KonsultaMD to provide mental wellness support to parents, guardians, and victims of cyberbullying. Users can redeem one free session with a licensed KonsultaMD mental health professional 24/7 using the promo code MAKEITSAFEPH.
