Strong By Design Podcast

Mar 2, 2022

A young person or child can’t “unsee” something they aren’t yet supposed to see… think about that for a moment.

Going online for a child ‘should be’ a safe and monitored experience but unfortunately for many it is not… and parents often feel helpless.

The digital world available to all of us today is certainly amazing and exciting but also so easily accessible for minors and highly explicit in many cases.

Our guest today on Strong By Design has made it his mission to improve the safety features of digital devices and to ensure our children are saved from a world of predators, violence and adult only content.


"We have technologies being created by organizations that care nothing about our children and we want to stand in that gap." -Chris McKenna
