CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - October is National Bullying Prevention Month and Jehovah’s Witnesses have resources to include in the conversation.

Robert Hendriks, the U.S. Spokesperson, said cyberbullying isn’t inevitable but extremely possible with the popularity of social media. He said having tough conversations as a family is important.

“It’s important to put aside sacrosanct time is inviolable. If you call it family worship like Jehovah’s Witnesses do or not that time is so important for families to open up dialogue and maintain it,” Hendriks said.

If the topic of cyberbullying is already open, Henderiks believes kids and teens are more likely to ask parents or a trusted adult for help. “Many young ones are embarrassed even to talk to their parents and they feel like they can handle it themselves,” Hendriks said.

It’s rewarding for him to be a part of a group wanting to help families whether they are religious or not. “They are using these tools to help themselves and children. Who knows maybe it will spark an interest in the bible and the creator later in the future,” Hendriks said.
