In the shocking documentary Childhood 2.0, a cybercrimes detective says most parents suffer from “NMK” syndrome (Not My Kid). In relation to kids using secret text codes, or being cyberbullied, exploited by peers, or even stalked by predators, Chris McKenna, founder and CEO of Protect Young Eyes, says, “It’s time for every parent on Earth to leave the ignorance of ‘if’ and embrace the reality of ‘when.’”

“Just because a teen comes from a good family doesn’t make him or her immune from engaging in risky behavior.”
