Episode 46: Keeping Kids Safe Online
In this episode of the Healthy Family Project, we talk to Theresa Desuyo, mom of three and Digital Family Expert at Qustodio, the leader in digital safety and wellbeing for kids and families.
Nowadays, there’s no avoiding technology. Kids are using laptops and tablets at school and opt to spend a lot of their free time surfing the web. Theresa shares ways that parents can help their kids navigate the Internet, keep them safe from harmful content, manage screen time, and how Qustodio can help.
Qustodio enables millions of families to filter out dangerous online content and activities, limit screen time and avoid screen addiction and privately share location.
The app-based platform increases online safety and creates daily opportunities to talk with kids about their online experiences, aiding in the digital parenting process that is constantly changing and becoming more complicated.
