ThirdParent has been so helpful in helping me keep an eye on my teenage boys’ online presence. Thank you so much for finding and showing me how to correct these issues!

As soon as we heard about ThirdParent we signed up — and have been breathing easier ever since. Our son was fully onboard too. We are all working hard to support his desired future, and ThirdParent is a great addition to the team! They do what we cannot do to monitor his online reputation, they are very easy to work with – and they care. The name ThirdParent says it well!

I have been working with Third Parent for more than a year and I find them to be a valuable resource for online child safety and privacy. Their knowledge and experience has been very helpful and I look forward to working with them in the future.

As a single dad, my daughter and I have always had a close, open relationship. Then one evening, she came out of her room upset, but refused to tell me what was going on. For the rest of the week, she was a different person – quiet, kept to herself and wouldn’t talk to me when I asked her what was wrong. I had heard about cyberbullying happening at her school and suspected that was the issue. ThirdParent’s audit uncovered a female classmate had been leaving mean comments about my daughter’s appearance on her Facebook photos as well as making fun of her on her personal page. Once I knew what was going on, I turned to ThirdParent again to help me take steps to resolve the problem and protect my daughter from further abuse.

I’d been hearing a lot about kids abusing social media on the news, so my husband and I decided to look into what social media sites our son is active on. We tried and failed to find anything, so I contacted ThirdParent to help find what I couldn’t. Thank goodness they know much more than I do about what’s happening in the online universe! The audit showed us that our son was tweeting about hating his math teacher, which could have been mistaken for a threat. He could have gotten suspended (or worse!) if someone reported it to the school. Thankfully, with ThirdParent’s audit, we were able to talk to him about his actions online before his comments became a problem.

As the mother of three young children, I didn’t think I had anything to worry about regarding social media until my kids were in high school. But when I saw that my oldest daughter, an 8th grader, had visited on our family computer, I contacted ThirdParent to see where else online she may have accounts. ThirdParent was able to find not only her Facebook page, but Twitter and Instagram accounts as well. The audit pushed me to sit all of my children down and have an open, constructive discussion about the potential dangers of social media and showed me that my kids are a lot more tech-savvy than I thought!

My son is an accomplished athlete who wants to play baseball and water polo at the college level. I heard college recruiters and coaches often check applicants’ social media accounts, so I hired ThirdParent to ensure that he hadn’t posted anything on his Facebook page that could hurt his chances of acceptance. What I learned is that he was active on more than just Facebook. While his online activities were mostly clean, ThirdParent was able to find some racist and profane material that could have cost him an athletic scholarship and his future. Thanks to the audit, his chances are better to get the scholarship he wants, and he now knows that his social media activity is a reflection on his character.

Rob and his team are amazing. I spent 5 years with getting no results. In just one month he and his team were able to get rid of my negative content. They are great!”

I suspected that my son had posted inappropriate content online. ThirdParent was able to find it quickly and take a load off my mind.

I have known the folks from ThirdParent for years. They offer a very valuable service for parents of college bound kids – especially scholarship candidates. I give them my highest recommendation both for the results they produce and their integrity.

ThirdParent quickly found some very inappropriate content posted by my son (or one of his friends as a prank). We were able to clean it up and move on. Good stuff!
