Hi, Michele! Personally, I was open about how Bark will help to alert us only to potential issues that as a parent I need to know about to help keep you safer. We won’t see everything, so you get a bit of privacy-- we only see things that we may need to step in on and guide you on. You’re going to mess up, you’re growing, you’re learning-- it doesn’t mean you will always get in trouble, it just means we may have to have a talk about what’s appropriate. I let them know the broad things that are monitored-- text, browsing, social media, etc. but I didn’t tell them the break down of the features (AKA)= “only SnapChat text but not pics”, etc. so that they don’t get any ideas about “blindspots” to try and bypass.
Here’s an article that I hope helps to have this talk with your son:
And also some tips from our very own Bark mom & CMO/CPO, Titania Jordan.
