“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.”

“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.”
