School districts and parent groups hire The Center for Online Safety to help them establish online rules, policies and boundaries to make kids safer.
We have identified five actions schools and parents need to take to make kids safer online. When used together, these Five Circle of Online Safety give your kids a significant safety zone to explore all that’s good about the internet.

Thank you so much for the concrete solutions you give parents to implement. Your message of online safety for kids is one all parents, educators and community members should hear.
Lisa’s expertise helped me think through how I wanted to parent my teenager. I have new skills and can change my iPhone settings to monitor what my teen does. I learned how to see if my child needs my help with a simple tool and another tool to turn certain apps off. I appreciate Lisa’s guidance in this overwhelming topic.
Lisa recently gave her presentation “Be the Guard Rails” at the Langley Library. Her materials were organized and concise, and she provided a clear plan of action for parents and other concerned caregivers with her 5 Circles of Online Safety System. Lisa’s style was open and friendly and she invited questions and discussions from attendees, sharing her own personal experiences and welcoming others’ input. The audience was engaged and appreciative of gaining important knowledge that pointed a clear way forward for how to better guide their kids. I highly recommend Lisa’s program to other concerned parents and educators.
Lisa is committed to being a good parent and helping others do the same. She is passionate about connecting other parents through conversations around online safety and educating the community on how to protect children from exposure to the harmful effects of the unsupervised digital world.

If I had to sum up my philosophy in a few words, it’s that we need to spend the same energy teaching digital safety as we do “real world” safety.
