Overwhelmed with the idea of combing through every single text and app and email on your kids' devices to make sure they are staying safe? We have a tool to help.
The Bark app monitors text messaging, YouTube, email, social media platforms and apps and then sends automatic alerts to signs of cyberbullying, depression, online predators, adult content, and more. But what we love most about Bark is that they encourage a collaborative approach--parents and kids working together as a team!
Join us as we chat with Titania Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer of Bark.us, about this super cool tool to help keep families safe. She is so fabulous! Also, she is a mom, just like us. It was so fun to hear her story and learn how she got started in this business keeping families safe and teaching parents how to navigate the ever-changing digital terrain.
