If you’re a parent in this digital age, then it’s likely the following rings true for you:
- You want your kids to feel safe and in control of their digital world.
- You want them to be able to navigate the risks in that world with confidence.
- You want them to grow, thrive, connect, create and collaborate despite those risks.
You’re also aware that to achieve the above, you need to be proactive in understanding the digital world a bit better yourself.
Martine Oglethorpe has spent 10 years staying abreast of technology changes while keeping one foot firmly grounded in an understanding of the things that make families strong.
