We created The Tech-Savvy Parent so you can provide it to them.
But that doesn't necessarily mean they understand how to use it safely. For that, they need your loving guidance.
So often though, we parents don't even know what our kids are up to online. The internet changes so fast. There's always something new to scroll. A new app to download. A new social profile to manage.
The good news is you don't have to be a tech guru—or even a prolific tech user—to keep your kids safe online. Teaching them to make good decisions with tech is no different than teaching them how to make good decisions at school, on the playground, or in your own front yard.
We can show you how.
I'm an internationally recognized digital safety expert and a parent.
As the founder of Ending Tech-Enabled Abuse (EndTAB.org), I work with schools, businesses, nonprofits, and governments to help them protect their communities from online harm.
Often, I wind up having conversations with deeply concerned parents. "You've shown me how to keep my employees safe. Now how do I keep my kids safe?"
The Tech-Savvy Parent is my answer to that question.
I'm a Professor, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, and a parent.
In recent years, I've seen an alarming increase in the number of adolescents struggling with tech-related mental health challenges. I was determined to make sure my own preteen daughter didn't become one of those adolescents.
But to say I'm "tech-challenged" is a hilarious understatement—so I felt stuck trying to help guide her decision-making online. And I know I'm not the only parent who's felt that way.
That's why when Adam approached me about joining his new project—The Tech-Savvy Parent—I didn't hesitate for a moment. We parents need this—because our littles need it.
