You know when you meet someone and you click? You talk in person or on the phone, connect online, in e-mail, or on twitter. Whatever way you connect you instantly know that you and this person click.
I had this experience when I “met” Mary Kay Hoal over a year ago. We first exchanged e-mails, then chatted on the phone, and now we “talk” to each other on twitter and Facebook. It wasn’t long before I clicked with her.
Mary Kay founded a social network for kids and tweens. At the time I met Mary Kay my kids were 10 and 12. Both girls loved playing on the computer, but had grown tired of the same old, same old online game sites for kids. The older of the two wanted to get a Facebook page. My response to her request was an overwhelming “No way!”
Mary Kay founded Yoursphere.com. As a dedicated and devoted mom to 5 children, she knows all to well that parents need guidance to keep their kids safe on the internet. For our family, Yoursphere gave my girls and now my son a place to play online. Yoursphere gave my husband and I peace-of-mind. We knew that our kids had a place to go online that was designed for kids. No adults allowed.
Tomorrow I will finally get to meet Mary Kay. We’re both at the TypeAMom Conference. Mary Kay is here with Yoursphere — Yoursphere is a TypeAMom sponsor. I am at TypeAMom as a Yoursphere Mom.
