Even Melinda Gates Was Unprepared
Being CTO of Your Household is a Really Big Job...
Melinda Gates, I Spent My Career in Tech. I Wasn’t Prepared for Its Effect on My Kids., The Washington Post, August 24, 2017
Well, it’s no wonder we feel overwhelmed if even Melinda Gates admits to being unprepared for parenting in the digital age. She says she’s still trying to catch up, and I think many of us can relate.
Sometimes we may even feel a little guilty that we haven’t set up Parental Controls on all of our devices and unsure where to start. After spending many months with my Chief Technologist studying this problem and researching what’s out there, I can tell you it’s not that straightforward. In fact, it was a total mind bender at first, but we think we’ve cracked the code and want you to benefit from our learning curve.
In that spirit, we are hosting our 4th Friend Event on November 7th: Get a Grip: Family Sharing and Parental Controls from 6:30-8:30pm
Here’s what what we’ll cover:
