Children today are digital natives: they are born into a high tech, Internet-connected world where they fearlessly navigate the digital highway creating digital identities and digital footprints along the way. The Crossing Guard advocates for child protection and online safety.
Parents and caregivers need to understand the risks and benefits of using the Internet, social media, apps and games. The Crossing Guard reaches out to parents and concerned individuals via workshops, speaking events, conferences, publications and e-books.
Organizations must be aware of their role and responsibility with respect to children's rights and Internet access. The Crossing Guard is a competent and reliable resource for legal analysis, current statistics and best business practices.
