A Guide to Protecting Your Children From Adult Sites

In order to better inform parents and guardians on how to protect their children from inappropriate online material is offering the the following guide on how to protect your children.

One of the most productive and proven ways to protect your children from adult content is to install parental control software packages on your household computers. Highly regarded software programs are NetNanny, CyberPatrol and Safety Surf. You may want to check with your ISP (Internet Service Provider) as some may include this software with your internet access or provide additional protection.

Parental control software works by blocking access to specific websites and online content. In most cases, when you buy the software it already contains a large list of sites that are inappropriate for children. You can then update the software through the manufacturer’s website or, in some cases, the software will update itself.

Different software packages protect your children differently, but most use “filterting” technology so you can use a list of keywords that you would not want your children to access. You can also setup certain access levels so certain computer users will not be blocked by the “filters”.

As in real life dangers that affect your children it is strongly encouraged to talk to your children about the possible dangers that exist on the internet. Talking to your children and monitoring the computer/internet usage are very effective ways of determining any unwanted activities.

Here are some key guidelines that you should review with your children to further protect them not only from adult content but predators on the internet:

  • Never access a website that states it is for adults over the age of 18 years.
  • Never give out personal information about themselves, family, friends or school to anyone they meet online in chat rooms, instant messaging or via email.
  • Teach your children that it is safe to tell their parent if they encounter anything that has disturbed them online or if anyone has harrassed or sent them improper material over the internet.
