I spend a lot of time online and I often wonder what I will do when Princess A is older. It would be hypocritical for me to forbid her from being on social networks but I have experienced first hand the dangers of the internet. Also, schools now require kids to do a lot of their homework on the computer. How can you tell if they are actually doing their homework or surfing the web?
I have some time to come up with these answers for my family but I am really interested to hear how my fellow readers handle their child’s internet use?
I have discovered a valuable product that can help you monitor your child’s online activity. McGruff Safe Guard offers a product where you can monitor your child’s internet from home or at work. They offer a free thirty day trial so you can test it out before you commit to purchasing it. They also have a free that I think gives some good guidelines for kids. When Princess A is older I might put something like this next to her computer.
Let me know what you think of McGruff Safe Guard and how you protect your kids online!
