Talisman Programs for Children with Special Needs Launches Webinar Series to Help Parents Keep Kids Safe Online

Zirconia, NC (PRWEB) February 8, 2009

One of the nation’s leading providers of educational opportunities for special-needs students is launching a series of interactive online seminars to help parents navigate the murky waters of Internet social networking sites.

The first of these online webinars, “Facebook, My Space, My Child, Oh My,” is set for Wednesday, Feb. 25, at 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Enrollment is limited to 25 participants per session, and registration is already underway.

The webinar series is sponsored by Talisman Programs, which provides summer camp and semester-length programs for young people (ages 8 to 21) who have learning disabilities, Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome, and high-functioning autism.

According to Aaron McGinley, who is leading Talisman’s online outreach effort, the Internet forums will explain how social networking sites work, and will provide parents with insights into the risks and benefits of popular sites such as Facebook and MySpace. They will also allow parents to ask questions and discuss issues related to raising special-needs children in an increasingly networked world.

“A lot of parents have been calling us with two questions about their kids and the Internet,” McGinley said. “They want to know how they can keep their kids safe online, and they also want to learn how to make online social networking a positive experience for their children. These webinars will help answer both of those questions.”

MAXIMIZING SAFETY, MINIMIZING RISKS

For many young people with ADHD, Asperger’s, and related conditions, social networking sites can present both a world of possibilities and a range of potential problems. The Talisman webinars, McGinley said, are designed to help parents maximize the potential of the online world while minimizing the risks that their children may encounter there.

“A lot of our students struggle with skills such as reading social cues and interpreting nonverbal body language, so it’s natural for them to be attracted to some of these online social networking sites,” McGinley said. “It can be a bit easier for them to communicate online, and also it’s a big part of mainstream youth culture. It’s something that almost every kid is doing these days.”

But the enticements and opportunities that are offered by the online world are accompanied by many of the same challenges that special-needs children face in many of their daily interactions. “Our kids typically have trouble understanding social rules,” McGinley said. “Well, there are a separate set of social rules on the Internet, and failing to understand them can lead to some serious problems.”

For example, McGinley noted, children who are prone to taking risks and making poor choices about who they associate with offline are apt to behave in a similar fashion online. But because users are often unable to control or remove images or information once they have uploaded it, the consequences of posting an embarrassing photo or sending an inappropriate message can be exponentially worse than making a social mistake in a real-world environment.

ABOUT THE WEBINARS

The first Talisman webinar will focus on the following five topics:

Tips to Keep Your Kids Safe Online This Summer


San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) July 2, 2010

Summer is full of fun: camp, sleepovers, pool parties, concerts, baseball games, campfires, holiday travel and more. However, we no longer live in an age where kids spend most of their free time outdoors digging for fossils in the backyard or even riding bikes. Tweeting, friending, Gchats and Facebooking are just as hot as meeting at the Dairy Queen parking lot to hang out was in 1993.

Social networking is here to stay and whether you approve of sites like Facebook or not, chances are your child is already on them or one day will be. Your instinct may be to ban your child from such sites, but as we all know, that just makes them more enticing. With more freedom to spend time online this summer, here are ten quick tips on childrens online safety that will alleviate your worry and help your children enjoy and capitalize on a fun-filled, social summer.

Keep Your Children Safe Online in the 2010-11 School Year


Las Vegas, NV (Vocus) August 17, 2010

August means back to school for families across the country. This year, the makers of PC Pandora 6.0 monitoring software are reminding parents to stay vigilant during the school year, as their kids now have an excuse to be online even more.

Kids definitely spend more time online during the lazy summer months, says Manuel Coats, Co-Founder of Pandora Corp. But very often, parents will try to curtail that time. Now with school back in the picture, kids have the excuse they need to legally be online and surfing the Internet.

In 2010, parents have no choice but to allow their kids to be on the computer. Schools are encouraging children to use computers and the Internet as a tool in learning; many teachers now post homework online, involve online research and require properly typed homework But unsupervised time can quickly turn to mischief.

Instead of doing research for a report, they may be messaging friends on Facebook or watching videos on YouTube, says Coats.

Pandora Corp. is reminding parents to stay in control of the Internet in their house and to implement rules of usage computer. Computer monitoring software combined with proper communication is the recipe for success.

Make sure you set up a schedule for computer time and rules for proper usage, explains Coats. If they are supposed to be doing schoolwork, make sure they are doing schoolwork, and explain to them why its important to focus on the task at hand.

Conversely, Coats also wants to make sure that parents dont forget to allow their kids free time to surf, chat and play games.

Its just like eating, he says. A healthy, balanced diet is the key to a healthy child in this case, its mental health and safety just make sure to monitor Internet activity.

PC Pandora 6.0 monitoring software helps parents keep their kids safe on the computer and on the Internet. The programs first-rate monitoring capabilities record all user activity through sequential screen snapshots, which allows parents to visually see everything their kids are doing online.

If your kids are spending 5 minutes doing homework and 55 minutes chatting online, instead of the reverse, you will know, states Coats.

PC Pandora 6.0 also records user activity through text-based files that capture all emails sent and received, instant messenger conversations, websites visited, programs accessed, peer-to-peer files shared, keystrokes logged, Internet search queries, printer logs, and more.

For parents that have to work and cant be home right after school, PC Pandora comes equipped with the IRIS feature, which sends the recorded text-based files to a parents email at specified intervals. But its the new PC Pandora LIVE! that makes monitoring Internet activity easy, effective, and immediate.

PC Pandora LIVE! allows you to review the data and adjust settings on the monitored computer from a remote Internet connection, explains Coats. Not only can you can check web history and view instant messenger and email conversations, but you can also view the screenshots, update Internet filters, and fine-tune the parental control parameters, all while at work, on the road, or simply unable to be at home in front of the monitored computer.

For parents monitoring multiple computers, PC Pandora LIVE! also collects the data from all machines with PC Pandora 6.0 installed and provides that data in a single place for easy review. This makes it easier to review an entire familys activity no more emails to comb through and no more having to manually view the data on multiple computers.

Stop Internet Predators

Going back to school also means forging new school friendships and participating in new activities.

There is no doubt that kids keep in constant touch over the Internet throughout the summer, says Coats. But being back at school with a new set of classes can easily lead to new friendships. Add to that the joining of clubs or sports teams, and there is a definite chance of new names popping up on your childs social network pages and IM buddy lists.

PC Pandora 6.0 will help parents keep informed of those new names so they can verify they belong to their childs peers and not random strangers online.

End Cyberbullying

PC Pandora 6.0 can play a huge role in ending the cyberbullying epidemic. Because the program lets parents know exactly what their young surfers are doing online, parents will see first-hand how they are interacting with others. If a child is being bullied, the parents will have records and information they can use to help put an end the situation before it gets worse. But it can also work on the flip-side, when a parent may have a bully in their house.

According to Coats: In some situations, PC Pandora might reveal that a child is the aggressor or a participant in bullying others. If that is the case, parents will have the information needed to sit down and talk to their child. They can put an end to the behavior before schools or law enforcement get involved, or before the situation spirals out of control, like the recent Jessi Slaughter incident.

Filtering Vs. Monitoring

While the parental controls in PC Pandora 6.0 allow parents to prevent programs from being accessed, such as Instant Messenger, and also help filter out inappropriate web content and block specific websites, like MySpace or Facebook, typical filters and standard blocks are easy for savvy young users to circumnavigate. Coats says if you have computer monitoring software, youll know what your children are doing and be able to act appropriately.

You can block Facebook and YouTube, but theyll just go to MySpace and use Google Video, says Coats. A strong monitoring program like our PC Pandora 6.0 is essential in keeping kids safe online, because it eliminates the guesswork and false assumptions of safety it shows you exactly what they are doing and tells you whether or not they are playing it safe.

Back to School, Safely

Classes back in session will give kids the excuse to be on the computer and the Internet all the time. But with easy and effective parental control and monitoring software tools like PC Pandora 6.0, parents can make sure their kids are staying safe on the Internet and not abusing privileges or making poor choices while online.

The bottom line is that parents absolutely need to know what their kids are doing online, says Coats. Our PC Pandora 6.0 monitoring software coupled with the LIVE! service is the best all-around defense parents can get to help keep their children on task and safe on the Internet. If someone is approaching a child with ill intentions, or if a child is involved in some way with cyberbullying, or if they are simply straying from work they should be doing, the parent will know and can act immediately.

Funding Flexibility Helps Keep Florida Children Safe and Out of Foster Care — Children’s Home Society Recommends Expansion of Successful Model


Winter Park, FL (PRWEB) August 31, 2010

On behalf of the National Crittenton Foundation, Childrens Home Society of Florida (CHS) President and CEO David Bundy participated in a work session of the Senate Foster Care Caucus on August 27 to describe how Floridas flexible funding demonstration program has achieved record success in finding adoptive families for foster care children, while ensuring more children are kept safely with their own families and out of foster care. Without natural or adoptive families, foster youth who age out of care are less likely to earn high school diplomas or GEDs, and more likely to experience unemployment, homelessness, teen pregnancy or incarceration.

Based on Floridas success, Bundy recommends the extension of Florida’s critical, Title IV-E flexible funding beyond September 30, 2011, and the expansion of the flexible funding model so all states have the ability to implement the type of changes seen in Florida. Further, Bundy urges Congress to consider fundamental reform in the financing of child welfare through alignment of funding to reduce administrative costs and the replacement of eligibility linkages with funding based on a childs need. Additional recommendations include provision of technical assistance to states, creation of a clearinghouse for innovative practices and identification of new ways to increase flexibility in funding.

Foster care should be only a temporary protection for children and the ultimate goal must be stable, permanent homes for all children, Bundy said. Foster youth age out of care at age 18 in Florida and between 19 and 21 in other states We must raise awareness of and promote solutions for these older children who leave foster care and find themselves without support.

Since 1998, more than 200,000 young people nationwide have aged out of foster care. Many would have been able to stay safely with their own families had flexible funding existed to allow the delivery of services that specifically addressed their families’ challenges. Today, 463,000 children in America are in the foster care system.

Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley and Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu established the Senate Caucus on Foster Youth to provide a forum to increase awareness of foster care, generate ideas for preventing negative outcomes and create opportunities for success for older youth in foster care.

About Children’s Home Society of Florida

Created in 1902, Children’s Home Society of Florida (CHS) is the second-largest private not-for-profit in the United States and Canada accredited by the Council on Accreditation and is the oldest statewide provider of services to children and families in Florida. CHS services include foster care, adoption, child abuse prevention, emergency shelters, residential group homes, independent and transitional living for teens, parent education, counseling, mentoring, and treatment for developmentally disabled children.

Trust Showcases Threat of Internet Predators; Keep Your Kids Safe Online with Computer Monitoring Software


Las Vegas, NV (Vocus) September 17, 2010

David Schwimmer is most known for his comedic role in the long-running 1990s sitcom “Friends.” But this year, he brought a very serious message to the Toronto International Film Festival and parents need to listen up.

Schwimmer is the director of Trust, a fictional story that portrays real-life danger. Clive Owen and Catherine Keener star as parents of a 14-year-old girl, played by newcomer Liana Liberato, who meets a man in an Internet chat room that befriends her, gains her trust, lures her to a motel room and rapes her.

While the film is still seeking a US-distribution deal, according to one Associated Press story, Schwimmer hopes to get the film into theaters as a cautionary tale to parents about the dangers children face online, where sexual predators can stalk victims with anonymity.

This horrifying story is all too real, says Pandora Corp. co-founder Jamie Leasure. More and more we are seeing stories in the press of young teens who fall in love with older men they meet online.

Pandora Corp. follows media stories of real-life Internet predators and offers a weekly compilation on Pandoras Blog, as a reminder to parents that the threats do exist. Leasure says in the past months, more stories have surfaced of real teens willfully meeting in real life with the men they meet on the Internet; many times they also consent to sexual activity.

Just like in the movie, predators use a tactic called grooming, where they spend their time to become friends with a young teen and gain their trust, explains Leasure. It gets to a point where the young minds have been so warped, that even when lies are exposed, the internet predators succeed in their mission.

Leasure says it is necessary for all parents to monitor their childs Internet activity. Not only should parents be concerned with whom their children are talking to online, but they need to be cognizant of strangers who are trying to initiate conversation.

Pandora Corp. is the maker of PC Pandora computer monitoring software, a program that lets parents see everything their kids are doing online. First-rate monitoring capabilities take sequential screenshots of all activity. All emails, instant messenger conversations, social networking activity, websites visited, search queries and more are recorded and presented in easy-to-read charts and tables. If a child is forming a relationship with a stranger, or taking other risks, the parents will be able to see it first-hand.

PC Pandora gives parents an exact record of everything their child does, so they can be sure of their safety, and/or intervene if necessary, says Leasure.

According to the AP article, Schwimmer talked to families of victims and FBI agents to help craft the right Internet predator for his movie.

He learned what every parent needs to understand, explains Leasure. These online predators are not stereotypical. They come in every form. They are our neighbors; they are husbands, fathers, teachers, cops, coaches, priests and every other male figure you would normally put a lot of trust into. That is the scariest part; and thats why parents need to be vigilant and monitor Internet activity.

Keep Your Kids Safe at Home During the Holidays


Irving, TX (Vocus) November 22, 2010

Latest advances in home security give parents an edge when kids are alone

Parents go through the same basic to-do list each holiday season: Turkey? Check. Presents? Yep. Decorations? All set.

Kids have an entirely different to-do list that consists of just one item – school? Not this week.

During the holiday season, many schools across the nation close their doors for all or most of the weeks of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. So parents who work add an additional item to their checklist – safety. Left alone during holiday breaks until their parents get home, latchkey kids need to be provided with a safe, secure environment.

Thats no small task. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, in more than 15.2 million households with children under the age of 18, both mom and dad work outside the home. And with the lure of expensive gifts stashed away in closets or under Christmas trees, this time of year offers extra incentives for thieves to break into homes.

For children who are home alone, an effective, monitored security system provides a greater level of comfort for the parents, and a greater sense of protection for the children, said Dom DAscoli, president of the Electronic Security Association (http://www.ESAweb.org). Based in Irving, Texas, ESA provides information, training and advocacy for more than 2,500 member companies who employ more than 500,000 industry professionals.

Traditionally, the idea of keeping kids safe has centered on the well-known model of a standard security system: control panel, keypad, door and window sensors, an audible alarm, and centralized offsite monitoring. But state-of-the-art home security solutions are now going far beyond the basics.

Marshall Marinace, owner and president of Marshall Alarm Systems in Yorktown, N.Y., is a 37-year veteran of the security industry, as well as a vice president on the ESA Board of Directors. He says it is now common for parents to be able to interact with a security system, even when they arent home, rather than simply react if something goes wrong.

There are so many possibilities because of technology developed in the past few years, Marinace said. The equipment is more advanced, but it also costs much less and its easier to install and maintain.

The most basic level of interactivity is a text message or e-mail sent to the parent via mobile phone or computer when a child arrives home safely, or leaves home again later in the afternoon. This not only eliminates the need for phone calls, he said, but also saves time during a busy workday.

Further, that notification can be linked to a live video feed via the web or as a video clip attachment that can be triggered by specific actions inside or outside the home.

Video is the hottest thing right now, Marinace said. People are asking for a series of cameras that can provide video through the Internet, and also store it on a digital recording device inside the house for later review. In fact, he said, some devices can store six months of video or more in a searchable archive.

Video is an excellent way to monitor whats going on at home, although the hidden nanny-cam has become less popular, with more emphasis on open placement of cameras in strategic areas. Ralph Sevinor, president of Wayne Alarm Systems in Lynn, Mass., who has spent more than 30 years in the security industry, says privacy issues have become important.

The development of video technology is opening up new ground so quickly its difficult to keep up with both legally and ethically, he said. The issue is the perception of privacy, and whether people are aware they are being viewed. So as a company, we wont place hidden cameras, and we discourage homeowners from doing that.

Taking privacy issues into consideration, cameras are generally placed openly both inside and outside the house. Not only does this give parents the ability to monitor when their child comes and goes, but they can also track activities such as homework, watching TV or playing video games, and see visitors when they arrive and leave.

Additionally, security access codes have become more sophisticated. Instead of a traditional single-code system, for example, customized codes can monitor or restrict access to specific areas or items within the home.

Using a partitioning technique, Marinace said, a child or a caregiver can be given a security code that limits accessibility to sensitive areas such as master bedrooms, medicine cabinets or gun storage. If the need arises to enter those areas, he said, a parent can either provide the appropriate code, or remotely provide access to the area via the Internet.

In fact, the combination of video monitoring and remote interaction is the cornerstone for any effective security system. This allows parents to take a hands-on approach to security without even being at home.

People want to have checks and balances, and verification that everything is being taken care of, said Bob Tucker, a spokesperson for ADT Security Services, which has 350 sales and service locations in North America. So instead of finding out about events after theyve happened, homeowners want to be able to remotely interact with their systems.

Tucker said the next level of interaction goes beyond simply controlling a security system. The latest technology on the market provides centralized wireless control of a wide array of household functions – not just sophisticated monitoring of security and video, but also control of temperature, lighting, appliances and entertainment components. Recurring events can be automated, such as timing for lights or appliances, and alerts can be provided for any crisis events inside the home, including water leaks, fire, or carbon monoxide emissions.

Parents can control these systems remotely via computer or mobile device. Inside the house, the system is controlled from a portable touchscreen panel anywhere inside the home, as well as through wireless devices.

Its more than about being able to control whats going on when your children are home alone, or when no one is home at all, he said. Ultimately, its a lifestyle management concept where you have control over your environment from inside the home, whether its monitoring video or getting the latest weather report.

In the end, though, for parents of latchkey kids, only one thing matters.

You want to make sure that the ones you care about are safe, Tucker said. Its all about peace of mind.

Las Vegas, NV (Vocus/PRWEB) December 22, 2010

Its no secret that our kids live their lives fully immersed in a digital world. With Christmas just days away, it is more important than ever for parents to take the necessary steps to make sure this years big gift doesnt open Pandoras box.

Despite the warnings from experts against giving a child their own computer, a teenager having their own PC is an unavoidable reality today. Times have changed; school work very often requires a computer and there is immense pressure from peers to be socially active online.

What parents tend to forget is that these high tech toys arent necessarily for kids, explains Jamie Leasure, co-founder of Pandora Corp. A computer that can connect to the Internet can connect your child with the rest of the world and visa versa. Thats not something that should be shrugged off. Its your job to make sure you are keeping your kids safe from Internet predators and not enabling a cyberbully.

Pandora Corp., makers of PC Pandora monitoring software, is reminding parents to be smart when giving teens and even younger children their own computer this holiday season. Parents must adopt and enforce a new set of rules, such as leaving the door open and a no Internet after __ time. Also, visiting a childs room often when they are online and asking them questions about what websites they are visiting and who their online friends are needs to become standard family practice.

In addition, as you get ready to give them the big gift this year, make sure it is outfitted with the proper parental control and monitoring software, says Leasure. Tools like our PC Pandora make it easy to find that safe, happy medium between teens being able to freely use the Internet socially, and parents being able to keep their kids safe from Internet predators and out of trouble.

PC Pandora is computer monitoring software that records all user activity on a computer. First-rate monitoring capabilities take sequential snapshots of everything that happens on the screen, allowing parents to see first-hand everything their child does both on and offline. Further details of user activity are made available in text-based files and easy-to-read charts, including websites visited, instant messenger chats, emails sent and received, peer-2-peer files shared, keystrokes logged, programs accessed, Internet search queries and more. The IRIS feature will send those text-based files right to a parents email, and the PC Pandora LIVE! add-on allows parents to check screenshots and adjust parental controls though a secure web login an invaluable feature for working parents who cant always be home when their kids are online.

PC Pandora is essentially a DVR for your childs computer, says Leasure. If your child is talking to strangers on social networks, creating and maintaining multiple social network profiles, visiting websites you dont approve of, downloading illegal music and movies, or falling victim to or even worse acting as a cyberbully, you will know about it if you are monitoring their internet activity.

As a special promotion for the holidays, the company is offering the software at a discounted price. Parents can use the code holiday2010 at the pcpandora.com store to get $ 20 off their purchase.
