Panic Buttons

leave a comment »

The Australian Federal Government is proposing an Internet panic button that would allow children to contact the police if they were bullied or threatened online. Um, why?

It’s not as if clicking a button and navigating a self-help government web site is easier than shouting “Muuuuum! Daaaaaaad!”. Alternatively, if a child or teen doesn’t want to talk to their parents about bullying, what makes them think they’ll talk to faceless people on a web site?

And that’s not to mention the kids who will abuse the service.

Are you being bullied?
