If you are the average parent you're going to worry about what or who is lurking on the internet, just waiting to tempt your child over to the dark side. You don't want to be one of those "helicopter" parents we've all read about, but you also want to keep your child safe as they begin to explore all that the World Wide Web has to offer them. So what's a parent to do?
The best thing you can do for your children is to do your research. Take a little time to see what's really available for your children to access from the computer. Depending on the age of your child, maybe computer time should be a joint venture. Even with older children, you want to monitor what they are watching on that screen and just who are they connecting with via cyberspace.
Below are some fun and educational websites your children might be interested in visiting. As the adult of the family, make sure to take time to check out these sites first to make sure it is the type of information you are wanting your children to access. There are many more family-friendly sites to share with young viewers, but for now, this is a good start!
