Will Gardner is the CEO of Childnet International, based in the United Kingdom.

He also sits on Facebook's Safety Advisory Board. He believes that in order to protect our kids, we have no option but to try and stay ahead of the curve, and be practically, but not in an overbearing way, involved in their online lives.

Plus he gives advice on how to keep those under the age of five safe, and how to encourage healthy friendships that will help our children stay safe online.
