Los Angeles, Ca (PRWEB) October 20, 2014
Dr. Tracy Bennett, mother of three, clinical psychologist, and university professor created GetKidsInternetSafe.com due to epidemic Internet problems seen in her office. With the release of the Jennifer Garner, Adam Sandler movie "Men, Women, and Children" October 17th, she is busier than ever spreading expert tips and strategies that help parents manage child screen media use.
“After my father passed away I took a hard look at my own parenting and realized that MineCraft was more popular than I was at my house. My GetKidsInternetSafe (GKIS) program changed that in a big way!” says Dr. Bennett. Dr. Bennett will soon be releasing a six-week GKIS Online Parenting Course that promises to change the tech risk profile for children of any age.
When asked what makes this different, she replied, “When my husband and I looked for solutions from other experts, we found trite solutions that simply weren’t practical. Blocking Internet use completely or supervising our kids’ screen media every second wasn’t going to happen. We love that our kids are tech experts! But we also knew that we needed to be in the trenches with them or we were going to be in somebody’s therapy office begging for help. So I used my twenty years of mothering and clinical expertise to make a comprehensive, realistic plan that parents actually have time for.”
The movie, "Men, Women, and Children" follows modern families too plugged into the world wide web. Viewers witness tragic fallout due to pro-anorexia websites, cyber-bullying, gaming addiction, sexploitation, and cheating sites.

She goes on to detail how she’s been treating kids, teens, and adults after the damage has been done and realized it wasn’t enough: “My husband often says he loves how I “hit the ground running” when I get passionate about something. And helping parents raise healthy, happy kids is my life’s mission. There’s nothing more important than that. GetKidsInternetSafe is a project I’m really proud of.” (See Dr. Bennett's Video)
