Technology has dramatically changed family life. The average home has 5.7 Internet connected devices (source: Bloomberg) and kids spend an average of 7.5 hours per day on the internet (source: Kaiser Family Foundation).
“As parents of three kids ages 8, 12 and 17, my wife and I were struggling with protecting our children from inappropriate Internet content while simultaneously ensuring that they were developing the technology skills, good habits and family values they’ll need to survive & thrive in the future. After looking at a number of solutions for this problem, we felt there was an opportunity to do better,” said Rob Irizarry, creator of Kudoso.
Kudoso’s Kickstarter campaign has brought press and funding from across the globe. Based on strong worldwide demand, today we are thrilled to announce that we’ve added campaign rewards to supply Kudoso to customers worldwide, along with a new stretch goal to provide the product in a variety of languages.
“The challenge of cooperatively managing technology in the home is common across both geography and culture, today’s release recognizes that and empowers parents around the world,” said Irizarry
