You are not the only parent concerned with their kids safety online. Internet programmers and website owners are also concerned about your children being as safe and as healthy as possible.
Keeping this in mind, they’re constantly attempting to make websites safer and more secure for children, and trying to protect them from possible Internet threats. To combat threats against your children, you need to be proactive about their safety online.
you can place the computer in easily accessible areas so that you can watch the child in which website he is seeing while you are standing in the room.
This lessens the chances of them visiting sites you may not deem appropriate. The less privacy they have on the Internet, the safer they are, even if they don?t like it.
There are programs created each year which allow you to pick and choose the sites you feel are most appropriate for your child to visit. If the child tries to go on a site which is restricted, he or she will be asked for a password. If the wrong password is entered, access to the site will be denied. This leaves you in complete control over their Web browsing.
Don’t keep the same password for long and change it regularly in such a way that is beyond your child’s imaginary powers. Giving your children access only to sites which do not have a chat function can be most effective when trying to protect them from potential online predators.
Teach your child how to stay safe when they are online; it is the best way to protect them against the bad guys.
