These are my sweet tween girls…my daughter and my niece. They are two of the sweetest girls you will ever meet! As a mom of a tween and teenager, it’s my job to keep them safe. That’s not so easy these days. When I think back to my tween years, I remember riding bikes, swimming at the pool, playing chase and talking on the phone. Now, it’s just not the same. My kiddos are on the internet constantly. They are engaging their friends on various social media platforms, watching videos on how to french braid doll hair and doing research for class assignments. This is a scary thing, because with one click of a button, they can be lead to something inappropriate or on any given website, they can be exposed to questionable ads. It’s been a source of anxiety for me for the past few years. Now, there is a safer alternative though…Bing In The Classroom! Let me tell you a little more…
