With ReThink, our goal is to conquer the silent pandemic of cyberbullying that is affecting millions. When cyberbullying occurs, children are often advised to block the bully and tell a parent or guardian. Research has found that 9 out of 10 children suffer in silence - they do not tell anyone. Cyberbullied victims suffer from depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and more likely to drop out of school. Several solutions that are in place today address bullying after the damage is done. ReThink is the first ever solution to proactively prevent cyberbullying before the damage is done. ReThink stops cyberbullying at the root of this issue, before hurtful messages go out on the internet.

ReThink provides an important opportunity for adolescents to change their minds and not post hurtful messages online. With a moment to pause, review and reconsider their decisions online, adolescents learn to make better choices on and off of the internet.
