Abu Dhabi Police urged parents to track their children’s online activities during the setup of virtual groups on WhatsApp and other social media platforms.
The Police explained that the student groups were created with the aim of studying remotely, but they often deviate from their main goal and get into altercations, which are unacceptable.
These groups often indulge in bullying towards their colleagues to the extent that they reached verbal violence and often use of illicit words against public decency, which affect the mental health of some children.
The Police urged parents to double the supervision of their children, especially during the current period, which requires adherence to the precautionary measures to confront the coronavirus.
The Police advised that parents should monitor and protect their children and that they should not fall prey of extortion and abuse via the Internet.

He emphasised the interest of the Abu Dhabi Police in protecting the children by preparing educational programs, initiatives and lectures to support victims of bullying, addressing the feeling of the loss of confidence, feelings of guilt and anxiety, increasing aggression and rehabilitating them through psychological and social specialists.
Brigadier Omran Ahmed Al Mazroui, Director of the Criminal Investigations Directorate, warned of the dangers of electronic bullying, pointing to the necessity of activating the role of the family and raising children in healthy conditions away from violence and enhancing self-confidence.
