Seminar to Help Parents Understand Social Media and Keep Kids Safe

Our little geeksSocial Media is everywhere these days and your kids are on it. Whether they’re on Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare or any other social media utility, chances are your kids are interacting with all kinds of people on the web.
