Is there anything more important than keeping our kids safe? I’d say the answer to that question is a resounding, no. Certainly, one of the best ways that we can protect our little ones is to teach them, and ourselves really, how to navigate the internet safely and securely. It’s no secret that there are baddies out there, and keeping them from gaining access to our kids is so vitally important.
