captures teen attention,
and bad actors online know
how to exploit them.
Our kids will visit many virtual neighborhoods – more than we’d like to imagine.
We are already doing an amazing job parenting our kids, but screen safety is a moving target. Most of us bury our heads in response to screen risk and hope for the best. We throw a rule in here and there but have trouble with follow-through. In our over-tasked world, we simply don’t have the time or know-how to research what to do or how to attract teen buy-in. They need screens to function!
The GKIS Social Media Readiness Training Course offers best practices from years of deep research plus creative, real-world clinical secrets from Dr. Bennett’s practice with the most challenging teens.
Family-tested and outcome based, the Social Media Readiness Course
helps teens close risk gaps and practice healthy

Why Dr B created GetKidsInternetSafe
“Being ‘the fun mom’ came easy for me until 2012, when I tragically lost my dad, stepmom, mom, and sister in only two years. Overwhelmed and distracted, I let Minecraft babysit my little ones too often. They were happy, but I was afraid they’d fall victim to the debilitating digital injuries I was treating in my office. When I researched what to do, there was nothing out there that worked. For my kids and the families in my practice, I committed to research and prevention, not just treatment. Now I’ve raised one child and two of my kids are teens. There are so many things for parents to know!”
GetKidsInternetSafe helps families connect in the non virtual and virtual worlds without nagging and withdrawing privileges.
Dr. Bennett has a PhD in Clinical Psychology and is a
world-recognized Screen Safety Expert. She’s treated thousands of families just like yours for over 28 years.
She also has three kids of her own!
With 15 years of teaching the latest psychological research about parenting and addiction at CSUCI,
her techniques are sensible, parent-tested, and
science-based. Plus, she works with interns that help her stay up-to-date with tech and trends.
Is Social Media Readiness Training right for your teen?
Do you worry your tween or teen is missing out socially & it's time for social media adoption?
Are you aware that kids weaponize social media & dread the potential harm from cyberbullying?
Do you worry you'll be shut out of the process & still want influence?
Look, we’re all terrified that our kids will be the victims of online predators, porn, or screen addiction. The risks are too scary to ignore. But too often, other parenting experts seem out of touch.They either go too harsh and suggest a screen-free lifestyle; or they seem too indulgent, suggesting that talking to our kids about risk is enough. Others say parents must supervise their kids 24/7 online. Seriously? Have you ever tried to do that?
Dr. Bennett recognizes a screen-free life and 100% virtual monitoring isn’t realistic for most families; and kids can’t always make sound decisions when it comes to screen use, even when they “know better.” Threatening doesn’t get us anywhere either. It damages relationships, and angry kids won’t accept parent influence. Plus, we often rely on their smartphones for tracking and communication. Yanking screen privileges is often more punishing for us!
Like with other important but potentially high-risk life skills, Dr. Bennett knows best screen practices must be taught, supervised, and managed – gradually with sensible flexibility. The GKIS Social Media Readiness Training Course offers your tween or teen the opportunity to start taking accountability for themselves, proactive instead of reactive.
With the proven GKIS Course, you won’t even realize the nightmares you’ll be avoiding as your teens will have the information to best respond to distressing online situations. They’ll be gaining independent resilience, building a positive parent-child alliance along the way. Dr. Bennett beleives that by teaching kids good coping skills on the front-end, you can avoid costly psychotherapy sessions on the back-end. With the strategies your family learns from this dcourse, you can work together to get through online challenges.
Isn’t that what we really want ?
A peaceful, fun home with healthy screen time.
Connecting! Not disconnecting.

Why is this course so inexpensive?
Dr. B loves the families she works with and has been a child advocate her whole career. Rather than charge a lot for a few families, she went against expert advice and chose to charge a little for many. She’s spent her career treating digital injury. At 52 years old she made a personal commitment toward prevention. A ridiculously low price made sense to her to achieve that.
Won’t kids figure it out on their own?
Some will, some won’t. Just read the comments from any moms Facebook group and you’ll see that not everybody forms good judgment online. They say there are no original ideas anymore, but we have customers telling us all the time they’ve never heard of some of Dr. B’s strategies. She’s been building them and incorporating best strategies from her work and research over 28 years of parenting, teaching, and clinical practice. That’s direct feedback from thousands of families! She knows what works and what doesn’t; her livelihood depends on it. 10 quick lessons for better screen safety & psychological wellness..

It’s never too late, even with teens. GKIS Social Media Readiness strategies can be implemented immediately for positive change. And you’ll learn a ton so you won’t feel shut out anymore.
What child ages does this course apply to?
The GKIS Social Media Readiness Training Course is developed for tweens and teens. I encourage you to use your judgement if your younger child is sophisticated enough to consider online risk. We believe that if you think your child is old enough for social media, then they’re likely old enough for this course. It covers topics that you won’t find free or in school programs. Dr B works with teens, so she has a lot of training and experience knowing what is appropriate for them to know. Feel free to email Dr. Bennett with questions.
Will we get access to Dr. Bennett?
Although this course doesn’t offer coaching packages, you can always sign up for coaching sessions with Dr. B separately. The first session is deeply discounted. Also, with the private GKIS Connected Family FaceBook group bonus, you’ll get exclusive access to her Facebook live videos and can post for feedback from her and other parents.

How long will it take?
This course is not super easy. To pass, your teen will have to read at least 10 short articles per lesson – most selected specifically from our blog. Then they have a quiz to take to move forward. Halfway through the course, the lessons get shorter with shorter quizzes. We designed this course to be self-paced. The user can take a lesson at a time or they can jet through it quickly one after the other. We also designed the course with mastery in mind. To move from one lesson to the other, your teen will have to pass each lesson quiz with a 70% or above. Like driver’s training, you’ll know that graduating from this course means your teen is certified in GKIS social media mastery.
Dr. B believes that learning and appropriately applying prevention strategies will decrease the chance your family will end up in a psychologist’s office for treatment due to digital injury. One can’t unsee what has already been seen. With this course, your teen will be more likely to come to you for help, recognizing that they are not alone facing risk online.
Don’t wait until after your child has run into real, damaging trouble. Prevent digital injury, teach psychological wellness, and let go of the parenting guilt. With our 100% satisfaction guarantee, you really can’t go wrong.
