Tired of watching kids struggle with excessive screen time? Let us show you how to help.
Children need your help today. Their world is filled with technology and smart devices and it’s not easy to turn away from them. In fact, over 90% of teens in the U.S. have smart phones and are on them an average of 6.5 hours a day, not including homework.
You worry they’re spending too much time online, at the expense of their schoolwork, friends IRL and time to “just be a kid”.
The Center for Online Safety helps parents and educators teach kids how to be good digital citizens, set goals based on what’s most important, prioritize their time and sometimes, even put down their screens.

Lisa is doing important work in this field in a humane and loving way. She is so gifted at connecting families and communities to help our kids and our families to flourish.
Lisa Honold’s clarity pervades every exchange. Something alchemical happens and Lisa is fully present, broadly informed and productively curious.
Lisa’s excellent coaching skills and the resources she offers makes her the top online safety expert for me to refer all of my friends and family.
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.
