Hi! I am Mary Heston, Director for Wired Moms. We are a group working together to get the word out about keeping our kids safe online.

My son reminded me this morning that I need to keep things fun too - it is very easy to post messages about all of the dark sides of the internet. But we love the Internet and there are alot of great things about it. So, here you will find cautionary posts but also some of our favorite things about the Internet as well.

Join us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and visit us at Blogspot on a regular basis.

Glad to have you onboard!
