Bark Connect is an online community where parents can ask questions, get answers, and share advice with other parents about raising responsible digital citizens.

Think about it: We’re the first generation of parents raising kids in the digital age! There’s no instruction book on navigating social media, screen time, or online safety for our kids. But we can all help each other by sharing our experiences as parents — our epic victories, and yes, even our embarrassing failures.

As a message board, Bark Connect gives parents the ability to create custom topics for anything related to kids and tech, whether it’s organized by age, interests, device type, social media platform, or anything else.

Inspired by our groundbreaking Facebook community of over 39,000 members, Parenting in a Tech World, Bark Connect provides a new, central location for digital parents to communicate with each other. Rather than having to scroll through thousands of old posts to find a parent who’s going through the same thing as you, this new platform arranges topics into neat and easy-to-find categories.

Bark Connect is made possible by Bark, an award-winning service that monitors text messages, email, chat, and 24+ social media platforms for signs of issues like cyberbullying, adult content, online predators, suicidal ideation, threats of violence, and more.

So great!

I’m not a very techy person but I went after it and tried to figure out Bark. I had a few snags along the way but I would email the help email and they got back to me so fast. They would even follow up with me if I hadn’t responded! After I couldn’t figure out one thing I had a zoom call with Leslie. Oh my word!!! Incredible! She knew allll the things! She helped me set all of the things I was having issues with! It was flawless and so so so helpful! Super thankful!! Thanks so much bark! Customer care is amazing! ❤️

Love bars

Love how awesome and thorough Bark is. Not only the program but their staff. There was some self harming going on with my son’s friend and the text thread was triggered and we were notified not only by the automated system but we had two employees reach out to ensure the issue was reviewed and that we were aware of this situation!! I recommend this program to anyone and EVERYONE... worth every penny!
