I think my kids have come up with a idea to fix the cyber bullying issues we have today in the world. They have created a new social media site for kids age 6-17 called Teen City Talks. The site has the bully button system. Which means there is a button they can push if being bullied it anonymous that takes a picture of the screen sends it to parent and admin. So we can take care of any issues before it becomes a problem. Check us out at www.teencitytalks.com

So it is a solicitation. You can't advertise on this site. I would suggest you remove the link. Sorry, but if this is your site, you can't advertise it here.

Amazingly, there is a button they can push on Facebook too. It is called the "unfriend" button. Guess what? Teens choose not to use it. I'm sorry, but no matter the social media, unless you can teach your child to switch off and walk away (which IS possible), bullying will happen anyway. Believe me, while something like this may be hypothetically ideal, it won't work either. You need to work from the ground up, and that means educating the teens. Teach them resilience. Teach them to walk away.

Kids won't sign up to a site like this as an alternative to Facebook or Instagram or Snapchat. They just won't. They may sign up in ADDITION to, but not instead of.
