Technology Expert’s Warning to Parents: Do You Know What Your Child is Doing Online?
In today’s global and virtual world, the need for parents to have full control over their child’s on-line activity has become a high necessity as compared to previous decades. With children as young as three years of age being increasingly savvy with technology, parents need to protect their families from becoming a statistic of on-line predators. I sat down with Technology Expert, Phil Temb of Atlanta-based TANKOH, a computer manufacturer and IT management company to talk about some interesting view points regarding Internet safety for children and the launch of their latest product for parents that have concerns about their children’s vulnerability when surfing the net.
According to reports, three in ten victims of on-line child predator cases appear to be aged 6 and under – with five percent apparently younger than two years of age which runs parallel to the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) report, a division in charge of closing illegal Internet content. More than three-quarters of these child victims are girls. Most parents have busy schedules trying to keep up with the current economy and may not have time to closely monitor their child’s on-line activity.
A survey conducted by TANKOH, an Atlanta-based IT Management company, in 2009 proves that most parents with teens are worried about on-line dating activities, taking into account the most recent happenings of the “Craigslist killer”. Today most children and teens meet new friends and partners on-line; however most of these individuals turn out to be vicious in nature. In this survey of over 1000 single mothers and parents, it was revealed parents are in deep need of computer technology that can help protect their children and deliver guaranteed safe content even in their absence. To answer this growing concern,TANKOH has created one of the first-line of computers specifically designed to help parents.TANKOH’s signature computer package, Mommy & Me was created to help parents protect their children from various on-line dangers like ….Click here to read more….

Intern Tia Tia!
June 22, 2010 was my first blog that I uploaded, “Appreciating the Sound of Music.” I was instructed to write a blog on Electric Violinist, Ken Ford’s foundation. Walking into it I was extremely nervous because I had NEVER wrote a blog before. When writing a press release, setting up a website, or a press packet I have a little experience, but when it came to blogging I was hesitant.
So I wrote my version of my blog and sent it over to Tamika Morrison, my Public Relations Advisor. She wanted to edit it before I uploaded, which I appreciated, but once it was uploaded I could see many things were changed. With this being my first blog Ms. Tamika told me I did a great job, but there were a few errors. After that blog came two more, I still hadn’t mastered blogging so each time I would submit my copy of the blog it would be revised.
When blogging you think of it to be your own online personal diary, but you also have to remember to be professional. Each blog that I submitted was revised by Tamika, and then uploaded. I was a little down because I was so eager to master blogging, but after speaking with Ms. Tamika I was Ok.
“Portia, even some of the best writers have to get their papers edited over and over, so don’t take don’t take it personal,” ensured Tamika. When she told me that I felt a lot better, I know that I am not one of the best writers so that means I just have to keep practicing. Which is why I am so thankful to Tamika Morrison and Rochelle Valsaint, they are truly providing me with the tools and techniques to be successful. On a personal level I even look up to these ladies; here are two African-American young beautiful women loving their jobs that they have personally made into their OWN!!! True entrepreneurs and for that I say thank you to Tamika, Rochelle and the other intern Keri!!!!
