Dr. Bennett is a grateful mother of three, clinical psychologist, author, and adjunct faculty at California State University Channel Islands (addiction studies, parenting, and clinical psychology). After losing her parents several years ago she became overwhelmed with personal responsibilities and feared the screen media freedoms she was giving her kids. While they were playing on their computers too many hours, her practice was blowing up with very serious issues, the likes of which she hadn’t ever before seen in practice. So she created GetKidsInternetSafe.

Her warm and funny speaking style offers valuable insights and strategies that parents can use immediately to develop a stronger parent-child alliance and avoid costly parenting mistakes.Her GetKidsInternetSafe blog page provides loads of free tips and offers convenient online video parenting courses (The GKIS QuickStart Kit, and GKIS 30 Days to Internet Safety).
