Bark has recently created two documentaries that we think all parents should watch. The first is a 9-minute documentary where a Mom poses as an 11-year-old girl online to expose the dangers of social media.
The next is a feature length documentary called Childhood 2.0 that Bark says “is required viewing for anyone who wants to better understand the world their children are navigating as they grow up in the digital age. Featuring actual parents and kids as well as industry-leading experts in child safety and development, this documentary dives into the real-life issues facing kids today — including cyberbullying, online predators, suicidal ideation, and more.” We couldn’t agree more! Check out the video below.
