Remember the scene in A Christmas Story when Ralphie snaps and attacks the bully Scut Farkus? While it might feel satisfying to see a bully get walloped in reality that's not the way to handle them. Nowadays schoolyard bullying doesn't stop at school. With texting, cell phones, uploaded videos, and other social media these ever-more vicious attacks can be almost non-stop. Some of these cyberbullies even create websites specifically targeting a single victim.

As horrible as the idea of your child being a victim of cyberbullying, imagine if your child was the bully or falsely accused of being the bully. Civil lawsuits usually follow, psychological counseling is often recommended for both the victim and abuser. Even if the accusation of cyberbullying turns out to be groundless, reputations have been ruined.

The financial impact can be devastating but CyberSafety® Coverage from Lexington, an endorsement available in the Non-standard Homeowner or Rental Dwelling product can provide coverage in what can be a very difficult time. It features:

  • Limits of up to $250,000 for damages including defense costs.
  • Crisis Response Coverage to help manage the situation including handling the adverse publicity.
  • Up to $5,000 to hire a public relations firm to manage the adverse media attention and potential reputational fallout even if the allegations turn out to be false.
Coverage does not respond when parents or guardians had knowledge of the cyberbullying event and failed to either prevent the cyberbullying or notify the proper authorities.

Check out more features of Big "I" Markets products Non-standard Homeowners or Rental Dwelling, Non-standard Condominium Unit Owner, Non-standard Renters, and Vacant Dwelling - Non-standard.

Big "I" Markets Christmas Songs

By Michael Welch, Big I Advantage Marketing Assistant

Last weekend, it seemed I heard Christmas songs practically everywhere and, honestly, I have to wonder what some of the songwriters were thinking. Lyrics such as "A child, a child, shivers in the cold. Let us bring him silver and gold." Because that's what a freezing baby needs; ice-cold metal!

There is also the lyric "Christmas comes this time each year…" - Well, yes. It's an annual event. That lyric is part of Little Saint Nick a song about Santa, his hotrod sleigh and the "reindeerpower" of the engine. Does he have Commercial Auto (under Small Commercial) for that hotrod?

If you're like me, part of your brain is always thinking about insurance, so I had no choice but to create a list of holiday songs that relate to Big "I" Markets products.

Check out:

From the Big "I" Markets team, we wish you a happy holiday season!
