Wendi Finn is the mother of three young boys. Working in the industry of technology security, she understands the risks and threats associated with on-line devices, such as smart phones, tablets and gaming devices.
Why It Matters: Two years ago Finn went up to her boy's bedroom to find the three of them huddled around the computer. She looked over their shoulder and to her shock and horror, they had accessed YouTube©. Prior to this fateful afternoon, the boys had never ventured off the pages she had bookmarked. Without any notes home to the parents, without any education surrounding the risks and threats of the internet, her first grader's music teacher had introduced the class to YouTube©. Here they sat innocently searching for "the milkshake dance."
This was Wendi's wake-up call. She works in the security industry, yet hadn't taken the time to educate her own young children. She thought it was too soon. She thought she had mitigated the risks by teaching them to access bookmarked pages. That was not enough. The world is full of technology and like it or not, our children are being introduced to the internet, social media and gaming without education and often times, without guidance. While explaining the threats and intricacies associated with technology is not easy, Wendi has come to realize it is important. She hopes this workbook will act as a guide for other parents in her situation.
