As an author, Charlene has developed a theory of digital supervision© to be used by parents, caregivers and professional allies. Her theory is comprised of two main features: awareness there is a problem and methods for adults to supervise children as they use digital devices. She also presents to children and youth using the digital supervision© model related to their safe choices on the Internet. Charlene is considered a computer and network specialist. She has managed computer networks (file server, proxy server and email server), the largest network having 250 computer workstations. Her book is available for purchase at all speaking venues as a resource to adults.
Her theory of digital supervision© is explained in detail in her book “Digital Sexual Victims: True Cases” published July 27, 2016. This book was nominated for an international Award of Excellence by the Delta Kappa Gamma Society (sixteen + countries). A portion of the proceeds of her book is donated to Child Pornography Hurts.
Charlene is a global speaker and has presented her theory of digital supervision© in Canada, the United States and Europe. She has presented in Canada on Parliament Hill in Ottawa to MP’s, Parliamentary Secretaries and other representatives of the Federal Government. She was also asked to submit a brief to the Federal Government Standing Committee on Health, in support of Motion M-47 – a motion promoting controls on violent and degrading pornography on the Internet in Canada.
Children are very vulnerable and being victimized daily on the Internet, online games and digital devices. Most adults lack an awareness of the profound responsibilities in providing a gateway to the Internet and digital devices to children. Charlene believes all adults should be practicing digital supervision© for the protection of children and families.
