Meet Emily

Today’s episode is a topic I know a lot of us parents really care about and also struggle with- protecting our kids from all the dangers of the Internet and technology. 

We’re talking about social media, TV and streaming shows, online bullying, predators, pornography, screen addiction… it feels like there is an endless and growing list of online dangers facing our kids, doesn’t it?

In this episode, I share a bit about where we’re at in the stage of technology and parenting and the incident that really opened my eyes (and inspired me to cancel Netflix). 

My guest is an expert in the field of protecting kids online.

Chris McKenna is the founder of Protect Young Eyes, a team of passionate researchers, educators and presenters who help create safe digital spaces for kids. 

The website and free app will help you protect your family and to become, as they promise, “predator-proof, porn-resilient, and screen-wise.”

I also highly recommend following @protectyoungeyes on Instagram. Chris shares super helpful resources there in little snappy videos!
