    Yes! Children’s safety online is so important. It is great that you are addressing this. Parents and educators may want to look at the NetSmartz411 website, it is a great resource!

    This is great. Yomod (www.yomod.com) is a website that just launched that is designed to comply with COPPA and is really pushing a safe but fun online experience.
