The subject of childrens online saftey has hit close to home recently. I have learned that some parents/grandparents, may be completly naive' and unaware, of the dangers that children face while online. At the very least, not aware of where or what the child is doing while surfing.


The following links are full of information, to educate families on the issue of online saftey.

Please if you are a parent, grandparent or guardian, visit these links.

Excellent sites, Scarlett!

I would like to suggest http://www.cyberangels.org/

I don't always agree with Curtis Sliwa's approach to things, Cyber Angels has proven itself to me many times in dealing with online predators on a gaming site that I worked in.

I found this linked info. Which I quote from Acklan in the pinned topic
Freeware replacements for common commercial apps

I thought it could be useful for parents, who wish to protect thier children.

IProtectYou A way for parent to limit access to the internet in Windows 98 & ME. You can allow or block access. I set it to allow only certian sites instead of blocking. You can set time restrictions. Turn off the net at xx p.m. then turn it on at xx a.m. I find it very powerful but easy to use.

"None of the parents understand what their kids are saying. Even I don't," she said. "And the smart ones are even writing around the monitoring software. Parents who are so into this that they are actually using monitoring software, it's not doing any good. There are parents who are actually seeing what their kids are typing, but if you don't understand what they are saying, what good is that?"

Aftab's volunteers have created a shorthand translator that parents can download at teenangels.org.
