One lawyer. One shrink.
Two moms in real time with our heads firmly against the tween and teen online wall. Meet Sarah and Pam: digital parenting experts.
Sarah is passionate about technology and education and empowering parents, professionals, children and teens to foster healthy and sustainable digital behaviours to ensure our productivity, performance, parenting and relationships thrive in an increasingly digital world.
Before founding Klikd, she was a director and speaker at Digital Law Company, South Africa’s thought leader in all matters related to social media and the law. At the Digital Law Company, Sarah assisted hundreds of (mostly teen) victims of revenge pornography and cyberbullying and gave talks to parents, schools and corporates across the country on the legal, reputational and disciplinary risks of using social media.
Sarah also has extensive experience in the education sector. She spent five years running the strategic communications for African Leadership Academy (ALA), a pan-African leadership academy for talented youth from across the continent.
For her sins, Sarah is an admitted attorney. Sarah’s most important job is being a mom to two very cute little people. When she isn’t running Klikd or running after the smalls, she is a wine enthusiast, foodie of note and loves a good trot on the road.
Pam is a Clinical Psychologist, Forensic Psychologist, Leadership Development Consultant, Parent/Child Educator and most exhaustingly, mother of two boys, aged 11 and 13. She is the co-author “Your Teen Unleashed!” a hands-on to guide to assist parents on how to best show up for your teen as they manage the online world.
She has also co-designed “EQ in a Box”, a card game to develop emotional intelligence in children. Her main passion lies in helping youth to go from good to great as they navigate 21 Century challenges, and helping parents and teachers and up their game in the face of the exciting but tricky needs and passions of Gen Z. She designs and implements programmes for children, adolescents, parents and teachers both locally and internationally.
Pam is currently writing a book on teen bullying entitled “Dealing with Difficult Kids, even when they’re yours”. She is also an international and national speaker on child-related issues. She lives with her husband, two sons and intermittently, two psychotic dogs. She loves them all, in varying amounts, depending on who still needs to be fed.
