Programs offer different ways to monitor your kids' online activities By Steve Lambert, The Canadian Press Online Edition

MOBICIPNEWS on November 11, 2010

The Canadian Press Online Edition recently published an article, titled: "Programs offer different ways to monitor your kids' online activities."  Mobicip CEO and Founder, Suren Ramasubbu, was interviewed by author Steve Lambert and he is quoted in the article. We are happy to feature a section of the article on the blog, please read the complete article on The Canadian Press Online Edition.

"For Mobicip co-founder Suren Ramasubbu, they key is to educate your child about what's acceptable on the Internet, and then to slowly let go.

'I compare it learning to drive,' Ramasubbu said. 'Initially, you don't want to give him a car and learn by himself. You spend some time and allow him to learn, driving with you sitting beside (him), and then when you're comfortable and he's comfortable, then you can let him go.'

Meanwhile, Ramasubbu says one of the best ways to keep tabs on your kids is by becoming their friend on Facebook, so you can see what they and their friends are talking about. Mind you, you have to hope your kids don't realize that they can hide any status update, wall post, photo or other item from you by customizing their privacy settings."
