Our research on behalf of The Royal Foundation’s Cyberbullying Taskforce showed that young people are reluctant to admit to bullying, often referring to distressing online experiences as ‘banter’ when in fact it is bullying. The Taskforce, which includes ISPs, social media giants and charities such as the NSPCC and Diana Award has worked hard to put together this new project aimed at keeping children safe online, with the slogan ‘Stop, Speak, Support’. Social media companies such as Facebook and Snapchat have already begun to adapt their sites with the help of the NSPCC, to allow direct support for their users in ‘the event of a banter escalation scenario’.

Details of the Cyberbullying Taskforce’s new initiative can be found here. A short video has been released to announce and support this project, which can be viewed below.

Family Kids & Youth – what we are doing during Coronavirus lockdown

We are continuing to carry out our UK and international research with children, teens and parents but have switched all this online and to our apps. Our qualitative research is filmed and our mini groups, depth interviews and focus groups are proving to be a great success. Children and young people are totally at home speaking online and are extremely vocal, even on the most sensitive of topics. Parents are appreciating the ‘group effect’ of online video conferencing.

Our resourceful team at FK&Y has been home-based since Monday 16 March and our regular catch-ups on Microsoft Teams ensure we all know what each other is doing! We’d like to thank our clients, our suppliers and of course our research participants for being so encouraging and so supportive.

We have compiled lists of organisations that offer help on home-schooling, child behaviour, and anxiety and mental health. Please contact me barbie@kidsandyouth.com if you wish to receive this list.

Wishing all our clients, colleagues and friends our very best wishes! Dr Barbie.
