The Smart Social Summit isn’t filled with a bunch of safety tips you’ve heard before. It’s not your average “how to keep kids safe online” advice. This online Summit is for parents and educators who want to limit screen time at home without conflict, monitor their students online without being intrusive, and protect their family online with the resources they already have.
