Although the Internet offers the most amazing resources for research, education, information, and media. We are all aware of of how ugly the internet can be. However at this day in age our impressionable children are some of the most reliant on the internet for their daily lives. Everything from education to entertainment is centered on the internet. I am an IT Dad. I have made it my life to be in touch with technology and my children hate it. I impose restrictions on them that many parents do not know are possible. I am currently working to educate others, and make them aware of how easy some of these changes are implement. Future posts will touch on some basic filtering, technologies, and how to limit access via time limits and curfews. Where possible I will be including instructions, videos and access to utilities to help others safeguard their children while online.
