Keep an eye on the kids

One common question I get from parents is how to keep kids safe while using the Internet.  Here are some apps and sites to help answer questions about kids and the Internet:

Cyber Patrol 

Get Net Wise

However, if you use Internet Explorer, then you have a great tool already built into the browser itself.  Here’s how to use it:

  1. Click on Start
  2. Click on Settings
  3. Click on Control Panel
  4. Double Click on Internet Options (or Internet)
  5. Click on the Content tab
  6. Click on the Enable button next to the "Content Advisor"
  7. Use the tools provided to restrict access to web sites that you approve (make sure that you remember and protect the password you set for this feature)

Give this tool a try and I think you will find it useful.
