How to Manage Cyberbullying and “The Dark Net.”

We invite you to join Dr. Hallowell as he addresses the topic of cyberbullying and “The Dark Net” in Ep. 44 Cyberbullied to Death.

He speaks with Dr. Lisa Strohman, founder of the Technology Wellness Center, about this serious issue and specifically about the recent case of Brandy Vela, a Texas teen who was pushed over the edge by cyberbulling.

I invite you to listen to their discussion on the dark side of the internet and how kids are getting themselves into serious trouble. Dr. Strohman offers advice to help parents manage their children’s tech time and shares her gripping information about cyberbullying.

Dr. Hallowell recommends, “Balancing Electronic Moments with Human Moments.” The most reliable places to find meaning and love in your everyday life are in moments that affect you emotionally and move you most deeply. I call these human moments. The most reliable places find human moments are in the connections you make. . I am not referring to your business connections, of course, but to the connections of your heart. The people and the places that you love.   Learn more about The Human Moment here.
