We are living in a Digital Age
Leonia, NJ (PRWEB) January 15, 2009
GuardChild introduces the first One-Stop Website, http://www.GuardChild.com that provides parents with the fundamental resources for protecting children from sexual predators and other online dangers.
According to the Pew Internet & American Life Project, 64% of all teens admit to engaging in online activities they wouldn't want their parents to know about. This behavior puts children and their families at risk, which is why Michael Cafarelli has created GuardChild, a unique, holistic website that fuses the best parental control software and educational resources, enabling parents to minimize that risk.
"Real online security depends upon Protection, Education and Communication," says GuardChild president Michael Cafarelli. "GuardChild provides all three by offering child-monitoring and web-filtering software, a glossary of chat/text acronyms, a large database of child safety articles and websites, a searchable state-by-state sex offender registry, and an online community blog." Together, these services enable "Cyber Parenting" which encompasses understanding how technology affects one's family and using this knowledge to protect one's child when they are online. For example, a Cyber Parent sets guidelines for children's access and use of the internet, email, instant messaging, chat rooms, other online privileges and cell phones. This is only a basic aspect of Cyber Parenting which needs to be built upon in order to fully protect children.
"We are living in a Digital Age," Cafarelli says, "and if parents don't educate themselves and their children, then they will be vulnerable to a multitude of online dangers. It's that simple."

GuardChild was founded by parents for parents. The president and his wife have four children and are well aware of the dangers of unsupervised internet access by children. Mr. Cafarelli has over twenty years of experience in working with parents and children through various non-profit organizations in New York City.
