TrueCare on TV
I am a big fans of TrueCare, but I can understand why you might want to know what the experts think. Let me introduce you to Mike Muir from the National Middle School Association and Alison Rhodes, an authority on safety, wellness and healthy living who’s also known as “The Safety Mom.” These two appeared on Lifetime Television’s morning talk show “The Balancing Act” to discuss cyber bullies, sexting, predators and other online dangers and how TrueCare can help parents deal with these dangers.  If you missed it, click here or tune in on August 23rd at 7am (EST) to view the segment.

If this sounds like something that you want to try yourself, go to -, and you’ll get a 60-day free trial. If you decide to continue their TrueCare membership, it’ll cost just $9.99 a month.
