"Parents who aren’t concerned about their kids’ safety on the internet may be burying their heads in the sand. Cyber crime is increasing and the internet is ubiquituous in the lives of our children." ~ Schuyler Kuhl
Parents today must contend with something that was not on the radar for parents before us. The influence of digital media is a primary concern for today's parents. In addition to talking to our kids about stranger danger, drugs, sex, alcohol, bullying, and more; we must now add internet safety.
