The average American teen spends up to seven hours a day in contact with others on electronic devices, and a recent survey by AVG Technologies found that almost one in six 6- to 9-year-olds and one in five 8- to 9-year-olds have experienced what parents consider objectionable or aggressive behavior online. Other research revealed that 43 percent of kids in grades 4 through 8 were the victims of some form of cyberbullying. Although girls are more likely to be targets than boys, boys are quick to spread the bullying messages. Bottom line: It's never too early to take precautions.

To protect you and your growing child, here is a list of mobile apps, social monitoring software, Internet browsers, and other Web-based products to prevent cyberbullying on computers and cell phones.
