It’s a little crazy how the Internet has become such a big part of our lives! When my 16 year old was about 11, it seemed like just a few kids had their own phones and they weren’t always hooked up to the Internet, but now My Lisa, who is 12 years old, is texting me asking if she can download a book for her English class because the teacher has requested them to do so. The Internet has enriched our lives in so many ways, by having information at our finger tips, to helping us not to get lost when we are traveling, but it can be a little scary if your a parent.
Just last night, I heard on the news that our teens are spending about 9 hours a day using their phones, computers, and tablets. That’s a scary number! I know my girls are always listening to music, playing games, checking on Instagram and using the Internet for their homework. You would love to think that you know everything they are doing while on the Internet, but we don’t. I’m always looking for new ways to keep my girls safe and that’s why I want to share with you this new router called the Torch. It’s a simple parental tools that help filter content, limit time on the Internet and will let you know what your kids are doing and what sites they are spending their time. Torch wants to empower parents to encourage their kids to explore the Internet safely and become good digital citizens. I know, our kids are smart and their is always that kid that get around the rules. On top of building a physical product, Torch is building an online community that encourages discussion about Internet safety and related issues, so kids and parents understand these topics and why the rules are in place.
