Parental Controls Don’t Work

No parental control software can completely protect your kid from online harm. And parental controls never replace the need for parents. After over 1,100 presentations, testifying in front of Congress, and countless conversations, PYE has discovered 5 traits that are common in families who have kids who learn to use technology well and we call it The Digital Trust Framework. Does your family have Digital Trust? How does Digital Trust help a family deal with pornography, YouTube, TikTok, or gaming? Good questions and we’ll answer them. At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:
articulate the 5 components of Digital Trust, explain how their family can benefit from Digital Trust, and identify specific resources that can help their family use technology more safely.
