Children are generally very receptive to Bark because they are able to help protect them online WITHOUT a parent having to invade their privacy. They encourage families to have open discussions about online safety and how using Bark helps, and to engender trust with their children by giving them appropriate privacy online. Children appreciate that Bark does not give their parents the ability to read everything they’re doing.
