Monitor Children on the Internet Tips




First, use some common sense to monitor your children on the Internet the easy way. For instance, place the computer in a public area, perhaps the kitchen, where you can monitor them. Some children will complain loudly, but these are your rules. They live under your house. You’re the boss. Enforce the rules and be firm, yet let your children understand that you love them too.

To help you with this process, create an Internet contract that establishes your house rules. This will clearly outline what your responsibilities are and what their responsibilities are for their Internet usage. You can also state that they should contact you if they encounter any inappropriate material or people who make them feel uncomfortable.

Secondly, a good program will help you monitor your children on the Internet. There are several, and some are free, yet I’m always a believer in paying for good software. If you can afford Internet access for your children, then you can afford good monitoring software. The cost is generally around $30 or $40 per year, which works out to 10 cents or less a day.

Really, there is no excuse not to purchase one. Whichever you choose, the following is a list of features you should seek for in a good children’s Internet monitoring program:
Blocking or filtering prevents your children from viewing inappropriate web pages or ones that you haven’t approved of. ISP children Internet monitoring programs – some ISPs such as AOL will provide software that will help you with monitoring your children’s

Internet activity. Ask your ISP if they do provide one. The ones provided by the ISP usually are not as feature-rich as the paid ones out there. Time-of-day monitoring – this Internet monitoring feature will restrict access to the Internet to only certain times of the day. For instance, if you’re at work and your children are at home, you can disable Internet access until you get home.

Keylogging – this will allow you to monitor your children’s keystrokes and Internet browsing, which can be saved for later viewing. So if your children need access when you’re not at home, then you can always view what they typed and what sites they have visited.
Pop-up blockers – there are many pop-up blockers out there. These are specially designed to stop many porn-related pop-ups.

Stop the spam – we have all received spam, and I’m certain we still do. This can significantly reduce the amount of spam and especially the ones that are porn, gambling, and drug-related material—a great time-saver. Filter vital information – you can keep online predators at bay by blocking important information, like names, addresses, and phone numbers being revealed and removing objectionable words in chat and instant messaging programs.

A must-have feature because you never know what information your children are giving out. You want to stop this information before it’s given out! Built-in anti-spyware – this will keep other programs that have been surreptitiously loaded on your computer. Filter out search engine results – some good Internet, children-monitoring software will filter out bad words and pornographic sites from the search engine results such as Google, Yahoo, and MSN.
