Free classes from Project Stand aim to empower parents.

Worried about what your kids might be doing online? Me too. I have two young children who are both online more than I'd like to admit. One has her face planted on her iPad playing games and watching Kid's YouTube whenever possible. Her device is locked down fairly well with parental controls and she has time limits.

It's my pre-teen that concerns me more. Kids are far more tech-savvy than you might think, and I don't doubt for a second that she knows how to access whatever app or page she'd like. Of course, it's not just young girls or little kids that are pursued by online sexual predators. Online bullying, porn, unhealthy social media use, and other online additions can affect anyone at any age.
