T his course really opened my eyes about the importance of social media! I now view it much differently and will be sure to introduce my daughter to social when she is 13. I realized that it is not something to hide from kids as they will be using it at some point and need to be safe. Valuable information for all parents. There were also many technical helps here as I am not computer savvy. Really important course! Thank you.
