I am a grateful mother of three awesome kids, a clinical psychologist, and adjunct faculty at California State University Channel Islands (Addiction Studies). I created GetKidsInternetSafe.com in response to the serious issues I was seeing in my office due to poor screen management, while recognizing the challenges as a mother myself! After successfully developing and employing a sensible Internet safety system at home and then offering it to parents in my practice, I decided to reach more parents on the web. My passion is spending time in the beautiful chaos of my busy home and working with parents and kids to build a more loving and trusting alliance.
GetKidsInternetSafe.com prevents problems rather than trying to repair the damage once it’s been done. Make sure you sign up for the free article “3 Powerfully Effective Ways to Get Your Kids Internet Safe” in the blue box on your right. You won’t want to miss that! I look forward to getting to know you! 🙂
One of my goals for GetKidsInternetSafe is to inspire a cooperative and sensible dialogue among parents about the risks and benefits of child technology use. As a mother and psychologist, I am profoundly aware that each child, parent, and family is different and good parenting comes in many forms. I welcome you to dive in with suggestions and ideas for topics you’d like me to write about and offer resources and innovative ideas that have helped you. Please be kind, compassionate, and respectful of differing opinions.
What I Cannot Do
This site is only for information and entertainment. I cannot provide psychotherapy or professional treatment/evaluation services online. Instead of responding to specific questions about your child or family, I can offer general practical ideas to help you GetKidsInternetSafe. I hope that you will use the information on my site in the same way that you would use information in a parenting book or magazine; as a guideline to help you decide if you need more specialized evaluation. For specific questions pertaining to your child’s physical or mental health, please consult your local pediatrician or licensed clinical psychologist. And if you are in crisis, please contact emergency services immediately.
Thanks for reading through the legal and ethical stuff. Welcome to our GetKidsInternetSafe community, and please enjoy all that www.GetKidsInternetSafe.com has to offer!
