Internet Safety Tips for Kids
If your children are involved with using the computer, you need to learn how to use a computer also. By learning your way around the computer, you can access your computer's history which shows where your children have been and you can block your children from visiting certain sites.
Tip #3 -- Tracking Your Child's Activity
Many people have mixed feelings about tracking where their children go online. On one hand, they feel as if they are spying. On the other hand, parents feel like the only way to keep their children completely safe is to know the sites their children are going to and to whom they are talking to.
This is an issue you need to decide on yourself. You also need to decide whether or not to tell your child that you are tracking everything they are doing online. This can cause some children to become quite upset and rebellious and feel that you are invading their privacy.
If you decide to monitor your child's movement online, you need to invest in software that is made especially for this. With this type of software, you have much more control over sites that you can filter and keep them from visiting or accidentally going to sites that are violent and pornographic.
