MY KID WOULD NEVER
  
Mobile Mamma has identified a need that is occurring locally, nationally, and globally.  As Internet use by children and teenagers increases, so do concerns about their online safety. Providing a safe environment requires an in-depth understanding of the types and prevalence of online risks young Internet users face, as well as the potential solutions for mitigating risks.  Every parent worries about online predators at some point. Of course, it's natural to be concerned when your kid goes into an unknown world. But instead of acting out of fear, arm yourself with the facts so that you can help your kids be smart, cautious, and savvy.   (CNN poll)  
  ​Does parental monitoring make a difference? Yes. Research shows that teens whose parents use effective monitoring practices are less likely to make poor decisions, such as having sex at an early age, smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol, being physically aggressive, or skipping school.  Clear communication about your expectations is especially important. Research shows that teens who believe their parents disapprove of risky behaviors are less likely to choose those behaviors.  (Monitoring Your Teen’s Activities: What Parents and Families Should Know CDC 2012)
