I have a preschooler who now uses the laptop to play online games and watch YouTube videos. If there’s one thing I wouldn’t want to happen to my son while connected online, it’s to get cyberbullied.

According to stopcyberbullying.org, “cyberbullying” is “when a child, preteen or teen is tormented, threatened, harassed, humiliated, embarrassed or otherwise targeted by another child, preteen or teen using the Internet, interactive and digital technologies or mobile phones. It has to have a minor on both sides, or at least have been instigated by a minor against another minor.”

CiviliNation is one of the organizations that rallies against cyberbullying. CiviliNation is an international non-profit education and research organization “focused on advancing the full capability of individuals to communicate and engage in cyberspace in a responsible and accountable way.” CiviliNation comes from the words “civilization,” “civility,” and “nation.” Andrea Weckerle, an American attorney, is the founder and president of CiviliNation.

CiviliNation gives lecturers on how to participate in an unpredictable online environment and how to deal with the personal and professional impact of online hostility. It also offers lectures on conflict resolution.

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
