What about internet safety for kids-is there a way to block access to all sites apart from those that you have white listed? I don't want my young child to be able to wander off.
The first Internet safety tip for kids-and this applies to anywhere in life-is to never talk to strangers. It is just not a good idea to chat or communicate with anybody you do not know, or who doesn't know your family or parents.
The second Internet safety tip for kids is to keep kids limited to a few carefully chosen, and monitored, websites. There are many ways to limit where your kids can go online, and there are programs designed to block certain web pages and applications. The most widely known is Net Nanny, and many businesses and corporations use the same tactic on their employees.
The third Internet safety tip for kids is to never allow them access to a credit card or funds. They might not give the number away, but the temptation to use it will be far too immediate to ignore for most children.
The fourth Internet safety tip for kids is to not rely solely on Net Nanny, and to monitor your children's Internet usage yourself. It is best if children are simply never allowed to use the Internet without an adult present.
The fifth Internet safety tip is to get to become acquainted with what your children know. If they have a MySpace page, then make sure you know all about MySpace, who else can use the service, the terms of conditions, etc.
