He also serves as a protector of sorts, alerting you when and if chatting or surfing becomes inappropriate. When kids plug him into their computers via USB port, he comes alive, and his funny, cool personality adds a whole new dimension of fun, interactivity and emotion to the online experience. Chatman proactively chats with kids, helps with homework, sends reminders about events, features games and apps, and participates in chats online while keeping them safe.
One reviewer summed Chatman up perfectly recently when he wrote:
“The internet can be both social and isolating at the same time. That’s one of the reasons Chatman is available—to provide kids with a friendly emotive companion while they spend time online. Chatman has plenty of functionality, but integrates solid parental controls and creates a safe zone that keeps your child safe online, too.”
Chatman could provide some great content for you, especially in light of the fact that Internet protection is such an important topic of interest to parents today.
