At KidGuard, there’s one mission in mind: To protect your children online.
The team at KidGuard spends their time thinking about and developing ways on how they can bring awareness and inspire solutions on issues of cyberbullying, online predators, teen suicide, and childhood depression in the age of technology.
“As the age of children who use mobile phones decrease, parents need tools to cope with the multiple challenges of a digital world on their children,” says KidGuard Founder Lawrence Ng.
“KidGuard employs a team of researchers and writers to educate parents on solutions to digital parenting problems and also runs a popular child cell phone monitoring software to allow parents to stay involved in their child’s life online,” according to Ng.
KidGuard understands the internet can be a scary place, and to help curb this downward spiral of Internet trolls and other digital dangers, the company is dedicated to not only providing helpful information for parents, but they create proactive monitoring solutions, preventive solutions, and even crisis management solutions.
“With close to 20 years of technology experience, serial entrepreneur Lawrence Ng and his team has decided to focus their data and technology expertise to help parents deal with risks associated with their children being online,” the KidGuard website states. “His amazing team has a wide range of breadth and depth across technology, Internet, and date-driven businesses.”
Ng says KidGuard is a unique venture in that it is the only solution that provides detection and also offers prevention and response capabilities. “With our team of technology and law enforcement expects, we aim to raise awareness and educate parents on solutions to digital parenting problems through resources and informational content,” he adds.
KidGuard recently published a free how-to guide to educate parents on the importance of developing their children’s digital citizenship and safe online behavior. “The Parents’ Survival Guide to Online Safety emphasizes on parental knowledge from facts and statistics to preventative steps and warning signs of various cyber risks,” adds Ng.
The Online Survival Guide shares information on how important it is that parents make sure their child fully understands why rules regarding internet use must be followed as well as how, specifically, online predators can compromise one’s safety. The fast-paced lifestyle that will be normal to today’s children is a modern invention to many parents. Children today will grow up with the world at their fingertips, and while it is a convenience, it’s also a reason why a parent needs to know how the digital world operates, how kids use it, the lingo that’s used in online spaces, and everything else that pertains to digital socialization.
KidGuard also released an online guide for monitoring and looking after your child’s text messages. Keeping an eye on children’s text messages will allow you to know who they’re talking to, what they’re saying, ensure that they aren’t getting distracted from schoolwork and other responsibilities, know they aren’t saving or looking at inappropriate content, and build a relationship based on trust.
While KidGuard is focused on helping keep your children safe, it also wants you to be able to build a trustworthy relationship with them.
