#ICYMI: A New Vlog Helping Families Make Smart Media Decisions


There’s always a new app, a fun new show to binge on, and a new way to connect with family and friends. At this point, it’s impossible to always know what your kids are watching or what they’re doing online.

But, the good news is that you don’t have to know the ins-and-out to make sure your kids are being smart and safe in the virtual world. Our website,, is a great place to learn how to engage your kids in important conversations about media, and how to set parental controls to manage their access.

You’ll also find a video blog series called #ICYMI (In Case You Missed It) where Kat and I tell you about the most useful tools and resources we’ve discovered to help parents and kids navigate the ever-changing digital world.

This vlog, for example, covers a website that walks families through a series of questions and conversations to help establish clear ground rules regarding online safety and responsibility.

There are several other vlog episodes available on our site, and we’re constantly adding more. If there’s content you want to see covered, questions you need answered, or anything else, we would love to hear from you! Email us!

We’re fully committed to helping you create a safer environment for your kids in front of the TV, computer or connected mobile devices.
