Click HERE to read Enough Is Enough's Spring 2008 Newsletter with exciting information about EIE's landmark Internet Safety 101: Empowering Parents Program. The production of the cornerstone Internet Safety 101 chapter-segmented edu-teching video is well underway, and EIE looks forward to bringing the Internet Safety 101 program to Virginia this fall in partnership with the Virginia PTA
The Internet has revolutionized our life and has transformed the way we live, work, conduct business and communicate with others. While this life-changing technology offers us unlimited worldwide access to information and instant communication, it has also opened up new avenues for sexual predators to seek out unsuspecting children, as well as provide a global platform for the distribution of hard-core sexually explicit material that is harmful for our youth, and in the Web 2.0 world, kids are feeling pressured to post provocative pictures, videos and blog about their deepest personal experiences in a very public forum.
In this ever-changing world, although Internet safety is a shared responsibility between the public, the Internet industry, and the legal community, parents remain the 'first line of defense' in protecting children against Internet dangers. Unfortunately, parents and other adults are often ill-equipped to deal with evolving issues of Internet safety and need credible outside help.
At Enough Is Enough® (EIE), we have responded to this call-to-action by creating the Internet Safety 101: Empowering Parents Program to provide you with the information necessary to establish safety "rules" and use appropriate software "tools" (Rules 'N' Tools®) to prevent your children from falling victim to these online dangers.
Through this website and our 101 Program, we hope to keep you informed about the issues surrounding online safety and Enough Is Enough's effort to make the Internet safer for children and families.
Together, we can make a big difference and help protect an 'Age of Innocence' for our children.
For the Sake of the Children,
Donna Rice Hughes
