With an all encompassing array of technology platforms and services that are now second nature to our kids, there is a seemingly endless e-parade of online outlets where photo sharing, blogging, and meeting like-minded techies in countries from A to Z is as easy as 1,2, 3.0.
So how the heck are busy, multi-tasking moms supposed keep up with the latest technological advancements while making informed decisions, setting boundaries and teaching their kids about spending responsible time online?
The answer is a mouse click away at The Online Mom, an organization and web site founded by parents with extensive technology backgrounds (of course) that provides less computer savvy parents with the tools, explanations and advice that can keep their kids safe from online dangers like cyber-bullying, predators, porn or ID theft.
