Bronxville Schools Tech Director Jennifer Forsman has a plan to help parents keep their children safe from online dangers and screen-time saturation.

She organized a safety forum with guidance from the Westchester County High Technology Crimes Bureau to address parents concerns about apps, sites, and cyber bullying.

"With the onset of devices...its 24/7....we're teaching them which sites are friendly and which are unfriendly," Forsman said.

Forsman says "adults need to remember that we are the role models" which she believes is something that should be explicitly taught more often than not.

The safety forum will be held this month.
