Advice for Parents To Help Them To Protect The Kids.

 

For me when my kids were growing up it wasn't that big a deal because the Internet wasn't that big a deal.  Now its my Grandkids and a whole different story.  (Guess I just let my age out of the bag)  There are many useful sites with advice about safety for children online including:

- www.kidsmart.org.uk

- www.nspcc.org.uk

- www.nch.org.uk

- www.safekids.com

- www.protectkids.org

 

Restricting Internet use to a PC in a family room is one way you can keep an eye on your child's browsing activities. You will be able to take an occasional glance to make sure they are safe, without them feeling like you are watching their every move.

 

Letting them know your concerns and educating them about the dangers of the Internet will help them understand you are not trying to stop them enjoying the Web, just making sure that they have a safe experience.

 

There are also various software packages available that can help you monitor your child's browsing when you are not in the room.

These programs can record browser web addresses, e-mails, and chat software, and can also filter and block certain web sites and even record what has been typed on the keyboard:

http://www.netnanny.com - Net Nanny

http://www.naomifilter.org - Naomi

If your kids use Google to search for things, in the Preferences next to the search box there are options under SafeSearch Filtering to block explicit images or text.

 

There is a plug-in available for the Firefox web browser called Gubble, which allows you to set permissions on which web sites kids can visit.

In Windows it is possible to create a separate user account that can be restricted so that the user cannot install harmful software, remove crucial files or change Windows settings.

 

Create a new user account for your child by clicking on the Start menu then Control Panel and clicking on User Accounts. Click Create a new account, choose a name and choose a Limited account then click Create Account.

 

You may also wish to put a password on your own Administrator account so that your child cannot use it to install or remove programs.

 

If your child regularly uses chat rooms, instant messaging or social networking sites, there is an electronic identity card service they can use to verify who they are talking to: Net-ID-me
