Parental Control in Kidsemail.org is one of the new feature that I will likely recommend to parents. It allows a parent to configure various restrictions on what their kids can do on the computer. Through kidsemail.org they should use Internet content filtering then personally guide the kids. Don't leave kids unattended even they are at home only in front of the computer with internet connection. There are dangers on the net from porn ads, adult sites, gambling and many more.

Speaking as a father of four, the safest thing for your kids is to not let them online in the first place. Even safer if you also disconnect the TV cable antenna. They might start, uh, reading, and playing chess and stuff - which is what my kids do.

Of course, that is simply unimaginable for a lot of people.

Teach kids to be careful, accurate and have and apply self-restrictions, explain threats in understandable words, teach them not to trust everyone - and they'll be safe.

Hi Andy, and thank you!
I disagree though, that kids will be safe. There are all the dangers that even parents don't perceive; one of the biggest is the ability to perceive that something is abnormal or wrong, something that loss of innocence and "becoming jaded" tend to beat out of you - a sensitivity to wrongness is an intangible that can only be transmitted by maintaining a truly safe environment from the get-go. Obviously, there are times when gradual exposure to the insanity of the modern world is essential, and parents will differ on when that is, but certainly intelligent parents will concede that degrees of protection are required until a child is completely grown and independent.

Exactly. My notice was only for the fact that disconnecting from online now can't protect in future. Step-by-step accomodation should play better.
