I recommend protecting your home and your family from hackers with Trend Micro’s Home Network Security device. This device easily plugs into your home’s router so it can scan for cyberthreats. It prevents intrusions, blocks hacking attempts, and protects your family’s privacy from unwanted cyber intruders.
It also comes with an easy-to-use app so you can monitor all of the network activity in your home. The app includes parental control features so you can block inappropriate sites, limit your kid’s WIFI time, and protect their online activity. Now with my daughters taking more online classes I want to make sure they are viewing safe content while they’re online.
This device is a necessity in every home. To pick up yours, go to Trend Micro Dot Com and use code CLEVERLY20 (all in caps) to take $20 off your Home Network Security device purchase. You can also try their FREE Home Network Security app now available at the App Store.

Smith is a leader and trainer for social emotional learning and Social Justice and Equity in education. She also spoke with us about how Black boys and girls are often portrayed as emotions-less or emotionally unstable. She is making a difference and changing the way children see themselves through books. Her book “Jaxon Learns A Lesson” follows the journey of a young boy who is filled with regular human emotions and begins learning how to deal with them in a healthy manner.
