See What Parents Are Saying About Bark
“At this point, I like the fact my son is allowed to have privacy. I don’t want to be a helicopter parent, but the internet is uncharted territory for this generation of parents. I want to give him space to grow, but also know if there is an issue. So far, the alerts I have received have spurred some really great conversations on topics like cyberbullying and depression in teens. He’s fine, but some of his peers are struggling. This helps me guide him in making good choices.” — Shane B.
“I can’t say for sure that Bark is the reason this little girl is still with us, but I’m so grateful for this service.”
“Bark has been amazing. My daughter has a friend who is being bullied badly in school. This friend was told to kill herself, but she confided in my daughter via text, also pleading that my daughter not tell anyone how bad things were. Well, of course, I got the alert and called the other mom right away. I can’t say for sure that Bark is the reason this little girl is still with us, but I’m so grateful for this service.“ — Angee
“I’ve found that I see glimpses of awesomeness in my kid [through Bark].”
“I’ve found that I see glimpses of awesomeness in my kid [through Bark]. A friend was texting how sad she was about something, which got flagged by Bark. I got to see my daughter listen and validate her friend’s feelings, and I was so secretly proud of how supportive she was.” — Jennifer M.
“My favorite thing about Bark is it works! Have had three alerts and though all were nothing to be concerned about was thankful Bark notified me and I [could] address them with my daughter. I love that it doesn’t require me to read every last text and still monitors things. From my daughter: She is thankful that I don’t have to be (though I am and she knows it) logged in simultaneously to her social media accounts.” — Bark Mom
“I cannot fully express my gratitude to you for existing and coming into our lives in the nick of time.”
“Recently you saved one of my kids. I regularly check into things, make sure everything is okay, but don’t have an algorithm in my brain that can see all they’re doing, everywhere they are online. I trust my kids, but I don’t always trust other people they may come in contact with, sometimes even those who they think are their friends. Every website that kids are using these days has their private convos and pics already being stored, and ‘owned.’
Bark is just the messenger of what’s going on so we as parents can be aware. Bark is not the one writing, sending, or storing it. I get it. I cannot fully express my gratitude to you for existing and coming into our lives in the nick of time. Literally. The world has changed and become huge and more easily accessible – for good or ill – than at any other time in history. While I will continue to diligently teach my children, have open conversations, check in and what not, I will also continue to use parental controls, a clean router, and Bark to help my kids navigate their online world, safely. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart! You have no idea!!” — Kelly S.
