Online Safety and Katie Greer. This is worth 17 minutes of your time.

A video EVERY parent needs to invest 17 minutes to watch…

Katie Greer, online safety expert, was interviewed tonight on Bill O’Reilly’s the O’Reilly Factor.  The segment was about whether or not Facebook is harmful to kids.  There were some mind boggling statistics thrown around like….76% of 10 year olds have been or are on Facebook.  There was also discussion around kids’ social networking accounts and the fact that parents can share passwords, follow, and/or friend- but that’s as much as we can do at this point.  There’s no way to prevent or delete something as a parent.  However, friends, stay tuned on this topic.  I happen to know that there is an absolutely ideal app and website for this coming soon.

So, I found a fantastic video that sums up SO MANY fantastic and practical tips that most of us would never think of- check out the link below.  By the way, when this video was recorded, Katie’s daughter was only 2.  And, she is already working to set appropriate boundaries and behaviors that will just become a part of the world she grows up in.  Pretty sure Katie ‘gets’ electronic parenting!
