Today’s Parental Intelligence tools and services go beyond the block-and-watch of the past and give parents the insights they need to be digital parents now and in the future.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
In support of a national movement to increase awareness in “digital parenting” uKnow.com, offers parents in each of 5 major U.S. cities the opportunity to use its industry leading, parental intelligence service for 1 year, free of charge. Co-founder and CEO, Steve Woda explained why his company is a leading advocate for digital parenting; “Tweens and teens are spending increasingly more time on their smart phones, mp3 players, tablets and computers. Social lives exist the same amount online as in person, if not more. We want parents to understand that parenting online should be no more difficult than parenting was before technology.” Woda suggests finding and using one of many available digital parenting tools. “Parents should look for an online tool which augments their own parenting style and offers the features they desire.
As a leader in the space, uKnow.com’s own parental intelligence service is called uKnowKids. Woda explains how parental intelligence tools are the future of digital parenting: “Digital parenting has come a long way in the last decade. It started with parental controls which allowed parents to block websites and actions on a central home computer. With the emergence of PC’s and mobile devices this technology quickly evolved into the parental monitoring tools we have seen over the past few years. Today’s Parental Intelligence tools and services go beyond the block-and-watch of the past and give parents the insights they need to be digital parents now and in the future.”
Through its Parental Intelligence Service, uKnow.com provides parents access to the channels their tweens and teens use the most, as well as answers the primary questions parents face on a day-to-day basis. (Where is my child going after school? When are they most active on their phone or on Facebook?, etc) The resulting product, uKnowKids, gives parents access to an all inclusive dashboard where parents can review their child’s social and mobile activities, as well as keep up with their child’s whereabouts thanks to a suite of family location tools.
