Social media has made sharing and connecting worldwide impossibly easy. This communication boom has made children vulnerable and at risk in new ways that parents are only beginning to understand, such as cyber-bullying, sexting and over-sharing. Katie LeClerc Greer will explain how parents can protect their children by creating clear rules for interacting online and how to adapt these guidelines as their children develop. The show will discuss the biggest challenges facing parents today to keep kids safe online and share tips to ensure their children’s privacy and, most importantly, safety.
