My kids are 11 and nine. They’ve been using computers for years, but it used to be to just watch something on Netflix, or to play a game on something like Webkinz or the Little Pet Shop sites. Lately, though, they use the computer, and the internet, to do a lot more — homework, research, random browsing (which of us doesn’t do that!). It’s had my husband and I thinking it’s getting to be past time to put some kind of control/monitoring system on our electronics.
With perfect timing PartnersHub presented this great opportunity for me to both try out a new web control service as well as giving a one year subscription away to a lucky reader.
‘What is iParent.TV? If your kids are awake, they’re probably on a smartphone, in front of a smart tv, downloading apps, or posting to social networks. And most likely you have no idea what they’re doing. iParent.TV will be a yearly, subscription-based website for teaching and informing parents on all things tech, mobile, devices, websites, and apps for kids so that you WILL know.
The Problem. Most parents don’t have an inside track to tech or social media dangers, let alone how to safeguard their kids against them.
58% of 10–12 year old kids believe they know how to hide their online activities from their parents.
46% of them said they would change their online behavior if they knew their parents were paying attention.
Introducing iParent.TV — keeping parents ahead of the tech curve. We believe we have the opportunity to help parents understand, get involved and safeguard their children in the ever-evolving tech World. iParent.TV educates parents with all the latest trends via Websites — Social Media — Apps — Devices
The idea. It started with a group of dads who felt like their 9-year-olds knew more about tech than they did. They were right. But their idea will help change that forever for all parents. Once launched, iParent.TV will have 100s of videos and product reviews that are very current, cutting edge and trending, keeping parents who subscribe ahead of the tech curve.
How it will work? The iParent.TV website will be a subscription-based site costing $49 per year for parents to access all the videos, reviews, how-tos, and live chat support. It will be the largest site on the net helping parents understand what’s safe and what’s not in the world of tech. — And we are offering it for only $29 on Indiegogo.
