"I gave my child a phone, now what?"
The smart devices we give our kids are too often gateways to things we don't want them to be exposed to.
Kids are spending too much time on games, social media, and other time-wasting activities.
Kids try to get around filters and screen time limits. What are we to do?
There is an answer!
In this audio course, Frederick Lane and Jethro Jones talk parents through creating a Family Acceptable Use Policy. While an FAUP may sound like a bunch of legalese, it doesn't have to be that way.
With insightful stories from Jethro's years as a school principal, and Frederick's incredible research into Cybertraps over the last decade, this audio course will help parents know how to communicate with their kids to make things better for the whole family and their relationship with devices.
