Laura Encourages Parents to Keep Their Kids Safe Online by Using KidsEmail
Dr. Laura Schlessinger is one of the most popular talk show hosts in radio history, and has been offering no-nonsense advice infused with a strong sense of ethics, accountability, and personal responsibility for more than 30 years. She is a bestselling author of 13 adult books and four children’s books, including “In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms.”
Recognizing the difficulty parents face to protect their kids from cyberbullying, predators, vulgarity, spam, pornography and other Internet dangers. Dr. Laura encourages parents to use KidsEMail to help safeguard their kids. Here’s what she told us:
The biggest threat for kids online these days is the kids themselves. Parents are putting smart phones and unfettered Internet use in the hands of children who naturally do not have the life experience nor the self control to avoid problematic situations. Children always test the limits and do not have the awareness to be concerned about consequences. They will engage in highly inappropriate “conversations,” usually having to do with sex or harassment. They will readily engage in the excitement of meeting “new people” (translation: strangers) with ill intent.
Kids Email is an excellent tool for parents to use when playing an active role in keeping their kids safe from online dangers. Having the tools to monitor email activity gives parents the means to protect their children from the myriad of worries and dangers that exist on the Internet. Since children will know in advance that their email activities will be monitored, they’ll probably be more circumspect about what they write. This is a wonderful means of helping children develop self control and discipline to do the right thing.
“We are extremely excited that Dr. Laura recognizes how valuable a service like KidsEmail is in helping parents raise their children in a safe environment, “ says Jacob Anderson, Kids Email founder and CEO. “It’s always been our mission to protect children while helping them learn about and enjoy technology in a safe environment.
