He also teaches various other Safety programs. which include the dangers of the Internet, Sexting, Cyber Bullying, and Bullying plus Michael is also an Anti Child Sex Trafficking Advocate and teaches how to recognize and prevent horrible crimes happening to our children every day.  Michael started  Keeping Kids Safe when his young daughter came home with an inadequate I.D. card that simply displayed a picture on a high-gloss piece of paper in which parents filled out information on the back.  After talking with parents, he found that less than 5% actually filled out the back. He became even more determined to protect our children when he found all of his friend’s daughter’s personal information on myspace.com and found there wasn’t an agency that provided training, education, and state-of-the-art safety products all under one roof.  That’s when Michael saw the need to start Keeping Kids Safe.
