One of the trickiest aspects of being a digital parent is learning how to apply traditional parenting skills to the online world. Our parents had it easy—they kept us relatively safe by guiding us through a world they knew better than we did. But then the Internet came along and turned all that upside down. Today kids inhabit an online world with online friends that many of us are still figuring out.
That’s why we were so thrilled to have found, and tell you about, Frienedy, a private social network that’s safe and protected “playground” for users of all ages. Frienedy solves a big problem that we hear often from families, especially those with young Internet users: How can we keep kids safe, yet still allow them to socialize with all the different groups in their lives… from teammates, to classmates, to family members, and more.
This is an especially important consideration for young Internet users, who are anxious to connect with friends and family online, yet may not have the maturity to use public social networks, especially those that require users to be 13 years of age (i.e, Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, etc.).
In fact, it’s challenging for all family members to keep track of the various groups we all belong to, which is why we like this tool so much. It allows users to:
Easily manage and keep different social feeds and content separate.
Keep track and manage group schedules
Privately chat with all your groups
They also have a cool feature called the "Wishlist"…an epic list tool for managing everything a user needs and wants, helping digital wishes come true! We’ll be writing a lot more about that soon.
The best part is that is that all of this is FREE.
Traditional parenting in a non-traditional world just got a whole lot easier. Thank goodness.
