Mike Smith Urges Parents to Take a Look

----------------------------------------------------------------------
-
"As parents, we always strive to keep our children safe," says HSLDA's
president, Mike Smith. "But how are we going to keep them safe if we
don't even know what the dangers are? Internet Safety 101 tells you
what the dangers are--and what you can do to protect your kids. Every
home schooling family should be familiar with this course."
----------------------------------------------------------------------
-

I want to tell you about a remarkable new course for parents that
could change the way you parent--and even save your child's life.

As a father and foster parent to over 50 kids, I thought I knew all I
needed to know about internet safety. But after watching some of the
heart-wrenching stories in a new course called Enough is Enough:
Internet Safety 101, I now realize how little I actually knew about
parenting in the vast world of digital technologies and social media.

While passing the Parental Rights Amendment is absolutely vital,
protecting your children encompasses so much more. This powerful and
practical tool will help you tremendously in protecting your own
children right now. That's why I want to help you get your own set
today.

This program is so comprehensive, the name simply doesn't do it
justice. Some of the material you'll see in this 4-part-DVD-course and
workbooks includes:

Risks and dangers of MP3 players, social networking (Facebook,
Twitter, etc.), gaming devices, cyber bullying, smart phones, texting,
"sexting," video streaming, and off-site computer access;

Common techniques children use to evade parental controls and
filters (internet acronyms, key words, innocuous word search, and
more);

The compelling story of a 13-year-old girl who was lured by an
internet predator and became the victim of a kidnapping that almost
cost her life;

Testimony of a mother whose 11-year-old son became so ensnared by
pornography addiction that he used a hidden camera to "decode" the
secret password for his parents' home computer;

Confessions of a convicted sex offender and how his addiction to
pornography led him to become a predator of children through the
Internet;

Expert interviews on how the digital world undermines parents and
impairs the long-term ability of children to make moral decisions and
have healthy relationships; and

Online behaviors that put children at risk for abuse and
exploitation.

Internet Safety 101 equips you to spot the warning signs of risky
online behavior in kids, to know key paradigm shifts in technology, to
understand the modus operandi of predators. Learn to use preventative
measures, and how to create an atmosphere of trust between parent and
child.

Internet Safety 101 also contains a comprehensive list of tips and
resources.

This "best of the best" course addresses the most critical problems
that face parents in the digital and wireless age. It will educate you
about the things you didn't even know you didn't know. It will empower
you to prevent the insidious dangers of digital technology from
hurting your children.

With the explosion of the internet and social media into a powerful
worldwide medium, the danger to kids has dramatically increased.
Predators prowl this digital world--where parents are often the
immigrants and kids are the natives--creating a perfect storm for the
exploitation of children.

I believe so strongly that this course should be in every home with
children that I made arrangements with the producer so that
Parentalrights.org can offer it as a premium for your donation of $100
or more. I hope you will take advantage of this great opportunity.

Donate here: http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=15672

I'm so serious about every family getting this information that I'll
make an offer even to those of you who can't afford it. First, I
encourage you to watch the program in a group. If you can't manage
that either, then call me. I'll tell you where you can get the program
at retail price. Frankly, you won't save a lot, but I know that
sometimes every dollar helps.

But if you can, I urge you to get your own copy by donating through
ParentalRights.org. Your donation will put vital information into your
hands now to empower you as parents, and it will help carry forward
the work of ParentalRights.org to pass the Amendment (
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=15674 ) which will permanently
ensure your right to protect your own children.

Empower yourself to protect your kids in this vital area. Order your
copy of Internet Safety 101 today by donating $100 or more to
ParentalRights.org: http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=15674

Sincerely,

Jim Bentley
Executive Director

P.S.--As a parent, you can't protect your child from the dangers you
don't know about. I urge you to get your copy of Internet safety 101
today!

Because ParentalRights.org is a 501(c)(4) organization designed to
lobby the government, donations are not tax-deductible.
