* Cyberbully Forum launched

Cyberbullying is a serious issue. We at Marbella Family Fun, like any other family, have children that are using internet, social networking websites and are starting to use mobile phones.

The internet is a powerful tool that opens the world to many opportunities such as networking and fun activities. However, like any technology, it can also have a dark side if not used properly.

Last year, our family witnessed a few examples of the improper use of internet by students from some Marbella schools. Therefore, we decided to create this space in order to raise awareness about cyberbullying and encourage both parents and children to share their experiences and ideas on this issue.

Our cyberbullying forum also includes several articles we have written on cyberbullying. Please browse through them and let us know what you think. Click here to read more...

* Hiking La Concha mountain

The weather has finally cooled down and our family has been participating in a lot of outdoor activities. We have been enjoying the outdoors with hikes and jeep rides. One of our best excursions as a family is a hike up Marbellaīs landmark La Concha mountain.

Today is supposed to rain, so it wouldnīt be a good day, however this weekend calls for clear skies and highs between 23 and 26. Obviously it should be slightly cooler in the mountains, which makes for perfect hiking weather.

Hiking up La Concha is a great way to get out in the outdoors, breathe some fresh air, get a bit of exercise and bring back the kids to nature...and itīs free! Click here to read more...
