How to Parent in a Digital World

holderness kids podcast

If you have a kid that is online, you need to be a parent online. You have to understand and monitor your child’s digital footprint. What does that mean? How do we do it right? That’s not a rhetorical question, we have really been asking ourselves this, especially since Lola just got her first cell phone. Throw in that our jobs put our family on social media every day, and we have a lot of questions and concerns for our podcast guest today.

Meet Mindy McKnight

Mindy McKnight is currently ranked as one of the Top 25 Women on YouTube with her highly successful Cute Girls Hairstyles channel. While Mindy’s hairstyle tutorials began as a hobby, they have paved the way to a large family social media empire, including over 23 million followers across all social platforms. The family has been featured on ABCNews’ 20/20, Good Morning America, TODAY, Anderson LIVE, Katie, and The View. Mindy has also been a featured speaker at various conferences and events, including YouTube’s Brandcast. She recently published her first book, Viral Parenting: A Guide to Setting Boundaries, Building Trust, and Raising kids in an Online World, which debuted #1 on Amazon for parenting school-age children and in privacy and online safety and was recently featured on HMHB.org.

Action Steps

In addition to her book that I LOVE, Mindy has such a useful and perfect 15 step guide for understanding and monitoring your child’s digital footprint. The guide is wonderful for both kid responsibilities and parent responsibilities. We put it below for you!

About Us
The Holderness family has been dancing in pajamas and singing during snow days for years — but last year they hit the record button on the camera and published their goofy video on YouTube. Penn, Kim, Lola, and Penn Charles continue to make hilarious videos around tent-pole events and circumstances most families face.
