eLearners.com Offers Educational Resource to Child Care Providers

Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) August 2, 2007 –

Every day, millions of parents leave their children with a child care provider. It’s a profession that is always in demand as parents depend on outside help to make sure their children are protected, nurtured and educated while they are at work. In the United States alone, almost three million children go to a child care center regularly. To help current and aspiring child care professionals get the skills they need and advance in their profession, eLearners.com recently launched the ‘Mini-Guide’ to Online Child Care Training.

The site answers the following questions:

What does a child care worker do?

How can child care professionals advance their careers?

Can I get child care training online?

How do online child care training programs work?

Will I ever have to go to a campus?

What are the benefits of online learning?

How much will an online child care certification cost?

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, child care workers held roughly 1.3 million jobs in 2004 with about one in three child care workers self-employed. Child care training provides professionals with the knowledge to operate within and manage a day care facility and gives parents and guardians peace of mind knowing their children are cared for by educated professionals.

Through online courses, child care providers can develop a range of skills and abilities that can be used in other industries and related professions. After getting child care training, many students continue with their education and work toward a college degree in Early Childhood Education. Students can earn an early childhood education degree online at all levels (associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate). Early Childhood Education degree holders can go on to work as teacher’s aides; pre-school or elementary school teachers; day care facility directors, and more.

“As with almost any field, the options are endless for child care professionals if they have the proper education,” said Andrew Gansler, CEO of eLearners.com. “eLearners.com connects people with accredited programs so their advancement goals can come true.”

Companies Hit Hard with Negligent Hiring Lawsuits, Human Resource Managers Scramble

Miami, FL (PRWEB) July 17, 2008

A significant legal issue is emerging with the potential to affect all employers. Under the doctrine of negligent hiring, employers are being sued for the improper and criminal acts of their employees. “Many businesses do not realize that there are laws requiring the use of due diligence in their hiring practices. We see strict penalties and fines surfacing daily when companies fail to properly screen their employees and contractors,” says the president and CEO of StaffPatrol.com

Vice president and legal counsel for one of the nation’s leading corporate investigation firms states, “Increasingly, companies are being sued and found negligent for hiring the wrong individuals. A professional, comprehensive investigation can prevent negligent hiring lawsuits because they improve a company’s chances of hiring good, problem-free employees. The pre-employment background investigation is also a company’s best defense should a negligent hiring lawsuit occur. They establish, often beyond doubt, that the company was prudent and acted responsibly during the hiring process,” he said.

In one case, a security guard sexually assaulted a department store executive. The woman didn’t sue the attacker; instead she sued her employer for hiring him. Staff Patrol’s president remarked, “Consider the lost revenue and man hours your company can save by hiring competent, efficient employees. Even more than ever, human resource managers must make careful hiring decisions. Background checks can go a long way in providing a productive and safe work environment while avoiding litigation as a result of negligent hiring.”

Many companies may purchase web-based access to criminal databases in an attempt to screen their employees. However, there is a big misconception about a centralized, nationwide criminal records database that reports from every jurisdiction in the United States. No such comprehensive background check exists to employers online. These “do-it-yourself” database searches may cover many jurisdictions, but they are all incomplete. U.S. Senator Herb Kohl said, “The current system of state-based background checks is haphazard, inconsistent, and full of gaping holes”.

Many hiring managers may wonder if performing a background check is worth the effort if there are no guarantees. Staff Patrol’s answer to this question is in the way these investigations are done. The key is to engage an experienced company that knows how and where to search for these criminal records. It is simply not worth the risk to your company or employees to utilize the “do-it-yourself” web-based database searches. Senator Pete Domenici says “[Quality] background checks can help protect Americans from being placed in harm’s way, whether it is our elderly, children in child care, security workers, or others.” If you do not properly check an employee for criminal records and an infraction occurs, it is almost guaranteed that you will be confronted with the potential of a serious negligent hiring lawsuit.

Average settlements in negligent hiring lawsuits are now approaching one million dollars. Juries in such cases will assume that if you could have known, you should have known. Showing that you have exercised due diligence in making your hiring decisions will dramatically decrease your chances of being found negligent.

The president of StaffPatrol.com states “Our knowledge of background investigations and the required research expertise is quite broad. The employment screening services we offer go far beyond what many businesses can do own their own. We cannot stress enough the importance of following a thorough employment screening policy and documenting your decisions. You must keep a record of why and how you selected a certain applicant. If unfortunate circumstances take place, this documentation may be your best protection. Good human resource records will not automatically protect you from being sued. However, it will significantly reduce the possibility of being found guilty of negligence or discrimination.”

About Staff Patrol, Inc.

Staff Patrol provides investigative services for both commercial clients and individuals. The primary business model is to offer affordable and effective background check solutions using advanced technology and personally monitored service. Staff Patrol is becoming one of the most respected resources for individual and business security. For more information, visit http://www.staffpatrol.com/employers.htm

Reverse Rising Statistics of Crimes Against Children with Reverse Lookup Resource

Boise, Idaho (PRWEB) July 3, 2009

In recent years, cell phone and Internet usage among America’s children has exploded, giving criminals more access to young victims, and forcing parents to become more aware of who their children communicate with on a daily basis. To help parents monitor children’s Internet and phone communications with reverse look up services, Jim Finks, a father of two, has launched the Reverse Lookup Resource, an easy-to-navigate guide to a number of helpful research services. The site provides recommendations to the best reverse phone number lookup services, reverse email finders, online child monitoring software providers and other services that can effectively help keep American households safe and secure.

“As the use of technology becomes even more prevalent in our society, many Americans have relied on federal and state officials to enforce certain laws and guidelines to mandate responsible use of the Internet, cellular phones, other communication technologies, and the safety of our children,” said Jim Finks. “Unfortunately, our governments are not always as diligent as we would expect them to be, especially in adhering to legislation such as the Adam Walsh Act and other measures put in place to keep our kids safe. Therefore, as parents, we have to be exceedingly diligent when it comes to protecting our children, and part of that responsibility includes actively monitoring who our children communicate with.”

By July 2009, all states should have been in compliance with new standards under the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act, which created a national standard in classification and reporting requirements for those convicted of a sexual offenses. According to recent reports, most states have not complied and many are requesting extensions. These reports are particularly alarming as sexual predators and other criminals are reaching out to children via telephone, text messages and email in record numbers.

“Criminals are well aware of the fact that today’s children use technology far more than any previous generation, and they are using this knowledge to prey on them,” said Finks. “Just last month, a 15-year-old girl in Georgia informed her mother that she had been receiving sexual images on her cell phone from a sexual predator. These types of illicit communications are becoming a common occurrence throughout the United States.”

Fortunately, the Georgia teen reported the images to her mother, who then alerted the authorities. But not all children are as wise or forthcoming. To help further protect children against these types of criminal offenses, parents can use Reverse Lookup Resource to trace the identities of individuals who communicate with their children to ensure that they are not being lured by adults who seek to exploit them. The site also provides detailed information on the Adam Walsh Act, a detailed review of Net Nanny, which was online child monitoring software featured recently on The Oprah Show, and other helpful resources related to keeping children safe.

In addition to using Reverse Lookup Resource to help ensure the safety of children, the resources on the site can help consumers effectively identify the origin of harassing phone calls, screen calls, track missed calls and organize and update address books. The site features a comprehensive database of reverse telephone look up services, reverse cellular phone look up services, reverse address searches, reverse email finders and other services. Several articles are also available on the site to help consumers best utilize available resources online.

“Reverse Lookup Resource is designed to help give you more control over who’s attempting to contact you and others in your family,” said Finks. “In an era where people are losing the battle against identify theft and struggling to keep sex offenders and other predators at bay, I think that our website will be instrumental in helping consumers keep their families safe and regain peace of mind.”

Pandoras Blog: a Resource Hub for Internet Safety News


Las Vegas, NV (Vocus/PRWEB) February 08, 2011

Pandora Corporation started a company blog in 2007 with a simple idea: relay the stories from around the world that focus on Internet safety, and give a realistic solution to parents for the problems presented. Almost 1,000 posts later, Pandoras Blog has two weekly series and a massive index of Internet safety news, statistics and lessons to be learned.

We felt a hub for the hundreds of weekly internet safety-related stories was a great idea, explains Pandora Corp. co-founder, Jamie Leasure. While it would be tough to relay every single one, we are really proud of the content we have amassed and passed on to parents around the world.

From new state laws proposed and school policies passed, to new surveys and research conducted, to the good and bad of social networking, Pandoras Blog covers a broad range of media stories related to keeping children safe on the Internet. According to Leasure, one of the goals of Pandoras Blog is to showcase Pandora Corps signature PC Pandora monitoring software as the best solution for most Internet safety-related woes; he explains how two weekly series on the blog are the perfect platform to do so.

About three years ago we started a series on Internet predators, says Leasure. Every Wednesday, we compile the stories gathered from the previous week and showcase the men, and sometimes women, who are charged with or sentenced for Internet crimes relating to the luring, stalking or abuse of children. These stories range from incredible and unbelievable to, unfortunately, sometimes tragic.

Leasure says Wednesdays predator series should serve as a reminder to parents that Internet predators are very real; they are not a myth.

Rarely does a week go by that some guy isnt caught somewhere for soliciting sex from a child online, or worse – succeeding in his efforts and being caught after-the-fact, he states. If a parent is using PC Pandora, they will know for sure who their child is talking to and, more importantly, who is trying to talk to them.

While the Internet predator series is over 125 entries strong, a relatively new Friday series was born out of the changing culture and pure necessity.

We actually started with a MySpace series that highlighted the sheer goofiness and malfeasance found on MySpace, explains Leasure. But as Facebook became the dominant social network, we noticed a lot more stories coming from that side of the fence and started this new running series. The idea behind our Friday posts is to assemble all the stories that illustrate the trouble people get into because they simply do not think before posting on Facebook.

From burglars being caught because they could be identified by their Facebook page, to employees being fired over comments made on the social network, to students arrested for using Facebook to cyberbully their peers, to tragic stories of parents neglecting or harming their children because of a Facebook addiction, every Friday an assembly of the stories born out of Facebook mishaps can be found on Pandoras Blog.

Says Leasure: The Facebook series should serve as a reminder to parents that social networks are giant clubs with no red ropes, bouncers or VIP lists; everyone is welcome and the membership is half-a-billion strong. It is up to parents to know who their child is friends with and how they are representing themselves on these sites. PC Pandora will let parents know if kids are putting up risqu

GlobWorld moderators ensure no child reveals personally identifiable information, and that the site is free of cyberbullying and predators.

New Parental Control Software Care4teen Aims to Help Parents Protect Their Children Online by Offering a Resource in the Battle Against Cyberbullying


(PRWEB) September 22, 2011

As society becomes more technologically inclined, teenagers and children are going online in droves. The opportunities for them to research, learn and interact with each other are virtually limitless. Unfortunately, the Internet is not benign. Inappropriate websites, shady characters and cyberbullies lurk among every corner. This poses a conundrum for parents who want to allow their children to be connected while still staying safe. Fortunately, there are new tools on the market which grant parents the access needed to help their children stay safe. One such tool is Care4Teen. This intuitive parental monitoring software offers parents the ability to monitor activities, proactively block websites and stay involved in online communications.

Here are just a few brief benefits of Care4Teen.com:

Remote access. This means that parents never have to be out of touch with their child’s activities online. They simply login to their account from any computer or device with internet access and are taken to the page which displays all of their child’s activities, as further outlined below.

Intuitive parental-group blocking of websites. Care4Teen.com relies on a parent-controlled database for the blocking of inappropriate websites. The database lists over 3 million websites and the parents collectively determine whether or not a site is acceptable.

Complete parental control. Although Care4Teen acts intuitively with the blocking of sites, the parents retain complete control of their child’s online activity. They can choose to block certain sites which are white listed or allow sites which are black listed. Additionally, they can choose to have the program run with restricted or unlimited access, depending on who is using the computer at any time.

In-depth tracking and monitoring. The Care4Teen system includes many layers of built-in tracking and monitoring features. In addition to the intuitive blocking of websites, the program also records each URL visited, the length of time on each site, 10 second video clips captured every 2 minutes and random screen shots.

There is currently NO-CHARGE for this service. Care4Teen is currently in a beta phase; as such, it is currently free to download the software. Families who sign up during the beta phase will be granfathered-in after the site transitions to a paid-for model.

When it comes to cyberbullying, it is often said how the parents had no idea their child was being bullied online or doing the bullying. This web 2.0 epidemic has hurt countless children and the tragic stories are heart breaking. According to a 2007 study published by the Pew Internet & American Life Project, About one third (32%) of all teenagers who use the internet say they have been targets of a range of annoying and potentially menacing online activities such as receiving threatening messages; having their private emails or text messages forwarded without consent; having an embarrassing picture posted without permission; or having rumors about them spread online. Care4Teen.com offers parents just the tools needed to stay alert and on top of any bullying issues before they escalate.

About Care4Teen:

Care4Teen.com launched in 2011. It was developed by Intelligent Control Internet Access Ltd., a small but professional team who are, first and foremost, dedicated parents. Their goal with Care4Teen was to create a resource that would tackle the growing problem of internet safety for children head on. The Care4Teen team knows what parents are looking for in an online solution because they are parents themselves and they believe that the internet can be made safe for kids when we all work together.
