I have an 8 year old daughter who is beginning to show interest in going online. Normally, I'm in the room with her when she is online, but I don't want to be standing over her shoulder all the time. However, there are too many chances for her to click the wrong link and get drawn into something nasty. Can anyone recommend good parental control software, so I can have a little more peace of mind? She likes children's sites such as Cbeebies and Webkins, likes to find animated video on U-tube and search google for information on all things scientific. As you can imagine, I could be standing behind her chair for 30 minutes at a clip. I find that listening in to the music etc, doesn't ensure she is on the page I think she is on. Once she clicked a link to 'cinderella' and got a make-over video which is fine, but had nothing to do with cinderella- I imagine that nasty people could use innocent words like that to draw kids in.... Anyone with software out there that they are comfortable with? Thanks.
