Titana Jordan the Chief Parent Officer of Bark says, "It's a really scary era because we are the first generation of parents raising digital natives."
Jordan explains that Bark stays up on the top text slang using algorithms so she doesn't have to. And if there is an issue, Bark notifies Jordan via email or text message.
