Celine Naughton: We parents must be tech savvy so bullied children know that they can turn to us

SOCIAL media has a lot to answer for, but are Facebook, Twitter and sites such as ask.fm primarily to blame for the increasing scourge of cyberbullying? What of the responsibility of schools to protect students online as well as in the classroom? Or should we be focusing our attention on politicians for failing to crack down on internet trolls?

Of course, we need a joined-up solution to a problem that is increasingly posing a clear and present danger to our children; but as parents, the very first port of call has to be at our own front door.
