Statistics reveal that 90% of 8-16 year olds access sites with adult content on the internet. I wish to prevent my ten year old son from venturing into these forbidden sites. He has been recently initiated into using the internet and we have listed certain sites which he can visit on our PC at home. But I would just like to take some precaution. Is there any help?

Google "parental control software" there are lots of kinds for sale, but your best bet to keep your kids safe on the Internet is to stay involved. Put the computer in a relatively public place. Have a look at what the kids have been doing now and then. Make suggestions to them, talk to them about Internet safety and teach them the red flags for deception. There is no better parental control than the parent. Set the rules, then enforce them. My kids are 9, 10, 12 & 15 so I understand where you're coming from. The best prevention for problems is education, yours and theirs. Good luck!

Of course. Have you heard of www.kidsemail.org? It’s a great site which makes internet experience for kids very safe and interesting. It is very reassuring for parents to know that they will be in complete knowledge of their child’s internet activities. The site allows a child to receive emails from those in their contact list, email a copy of incoming messages to the parent, remove images within emails, remove links within emails, etc. and other such features to safeguard internet access.

Stand over your son and supervise at all times.
Far better solution than any piece of computer software ever written or will be written.
