You are in the right place if . . .

You’re the parent or caregiver of a child and you’re feeling a tad bit overwhelmed by all this Internet, online games and apps stuff.

You know how to get online for YOUR stuff, but you’re stumped when it comes to monitoring what junior is doing online.

You have a 2 year old who is the Swiping Queen on an tablet or smartphone. I’ve got tips for that.

You have an 8 year old who thinks he’s going to become a YouTube star playing Minecraft for hours on end. Uh huh, got you covered.

Or you have a 14 year old who is doing some weird stuff on Snapchat. Yep, you are in the right place.

I’m Elizabeth Milovidov and I support parents in the digital age.

I’m a lawyer, law professor, eSafety expert who has researched and written extensively on children’s rights and Internet safety.

I have spoken to hundreds of parents about Internet safety, digital citizenship and parenting in the digital age.

I have given lectures and workshops on Children’s Rights and the Digital World and I created my company, Digital Parenting Consulting (former Crossing Guard Consulting), to share that knowledge.

Did I mention that I’m right there in the trenches with digital parents? As the mother of two tech savvy little ones, I understand parents’ frustration and quest for answers and my goal is to provide those answers.

So after several years of providing consulting services, I created Digital Parenting Coach to provide parent-friendly resources to parents and caregivers exclusively.

And just an FYI, if you’re interested in my consulting and speaking activities for  the Council of Europe and other international organizations, you will find that information on the Digital Parenting Consulting website.

You can also read more about my academic and legal journey before jumping on the Digital Parenting train here.

Everything about Digital Parenting fascinates me: the evolution of Internet, the speed at which digital natives embrace the Internet, the interaction on social media sites, the increasing number of wifi enabled toys, the trending apps that are a “must”, the laws and policies attempting to regulate the Internet and users and most of all, the overwhelmed parents who have finally learned how to set the VCR only to realize that streaming is the new way to go.

To all of those parents – please know that you are not alone and that you really can “get this.”

As a Digital Parenting Coach, my job and my passion, is to empower you in the digital environment, by providing reassurance and guidelines to help your children.

You’ve got this – you really do.

You made it to the bottom of the page!   Yay, Fun Fact Time.

  • I am 6 foot 1 inches tall, wear a size 12 shoe and I am ALWAYS tickled pink to wear high heels when I toodle about town with my 6 foot 8 husband.  Gulliver’s Travels anyone?
  • I do not have Netflix because I know that I would binge watch every series listed.
  • I love Star Trek Next Generation and think Jean-Luc Picard and Data are the coolest, but I would have given anything to play a Klingon girlfriend to Lieutenant Worf. I equally love Star Trek Voyager and think that Captain Janeway kicks serious bootay.
  • Star Trek vs. Star Wars? I love them both and let’s throw in Battlestar Galatica to the mix.  The old-school version with Dirk Benedict and Bonaza dad, Lorne Greene or the new-school version with all of the international relations implications.
  • I am THAT annoying person who buys anything Apple creates.
  • I would love to have Olivia Pope’s wardrobe, bags, one-liners and dinner options (wine and popcorn), but with my own morals and values.
  • I get a real buzz speaking in front of audiences, but I much prefer to hang-out just one on one, so I can really focus on the person in front of me.
  • I’m fluent in English (duh); I speak perfect French with a supposedly “charming” American accent. I can make polite conversation in Spanish, but if you want me to pull out the big guns and speak Russian, then we must have copious amounts of wine first.
  • I believe I was a superhero in a past life because Marvel movies resonate for me – everytime.  Okay, maybe that’s just Chris Hemsworth.
