This was an incredible webinar there are so many details I wouldn't have thought of on my own, and excellent information on protecting yourself as an educator and on why difficult parents behave a certain way. The only caveat I have is that super recently (summer 2020), the web protection app recommended (AVAST) was embroiled in a controversy because they appear to gather and sell user data.
