Keeping our kids safe online is no easy task!
I’ve learned a hard lesson or two about the online dangers that are easily at the touch of the keyboard.
Hear me on this. You do not have to have bad kids to be thinking about internet safety!
I have two awesome kids.
Both of my boys know what we approve of and what we don’t.
But, we allow them to go online.
They’re allowed to use You Tube.
My oldest has a Facebook.
Although they may not intentionally participate in the garbage that’s out there, it’s not hard for them to come across it.
It’s a fine line, and I’m learning that it’s hard to balance allowing them the use of technology and keeping them safe at the same time.
What steps do you take for internet safety?
Here are a few things that I think are great!
God Tube is a family friendly alternative to You Tube. The kids love to watch funny videos. The problem with You Tube is that while they are watching something I allow, the sidebar is filled with stuff I don’t. I’ve been trying to find some sort of alternative and God Tube is definitely a keeper. Just look at this video. HILARIOUS!
AOL Kids is wonderful. The kids can browse funny pictures and videos and the search box will only return safe results. Yes, please.
K9 Web Protection is a FREE internet filter that allows parental control, password protection, time settings, and much more. It’s a must have!
Safe Search for Kids powered by Google. A child friendly search engine.
The world serves our kids garbage on a silver platter and we have to make an effort to protect them!
No one else is going to do it.
