One of her goals is to help us moms raise digital savvy kids to become critical thinkers instead of impulsive clickers. I promise you will not leave here disappointed. Toni admits that technology is some of the hardest we will understand as a parent, but gives us tools to become preparers instead of protectors.
She is a Family Safety Evangelist for Intel Security. She is an author, speaker, and cyber savvy mom of two teenagers (much to their dismay). As a family safety evangelist for Intel Security, she focuses on online safety and often speaks to educators, parents, and teens about dodging the dangers online.
Get a pen and paper, because you will leave here with a lot of information!
I promise it will be worth every minute.
