Safe Texting For Kids ...and their parents!

Fretzel: Safe Social Platform for Kids

Fretzel offers a solution for parents to coach their kids on how to behave in the digital world. Unlike other communication solutions on the market, Fretzel's patent-pending technology was built from the ground up for kids and their parents.

Fretzel includes built-in parental controls to ensure kids have fun in a safe environment while their parents sleep well at night knowing they are raising digitally conscious kids. Education in these formative years can go a long way towards cyberbullying awareness and prevention as our kids transition into more unstructured and unsupervised forums.

As kids begin their transition into using technology to communicate, it is so important that we as parents help guide and teach them how to be responsible digital citizens. We created Fretzel to provide a safe and fun environment for kids to learn with the appropriate parental governance.
