Top 10 Ways to Protect Your Kids Online
1.Monitor your children’s use of the Internet. Put the computer in a high-traffic family area and limit nighttime use. Also, check out online child safety monitoring software like IMSafer.
2.Fortify your computer with strong security software and make sure to keep it up to date. The McAfeeÂ® Internet Security Suite guarantees protection from viruses, hackers, and spyware. It filters offensive content, pictures, and web sites. The anti-virus software will also protect your computer from viruses and spyware by automatically scanning email attachments and files downloaded from P2P file-sharing sites.
3.Make sure kids understand basic rules for using social networking sites such as MySpace and blogs. They should guard their passwords, and never post personally identifying information or inappropriate photos. Blogs and social networking sites offer privacy tools that can be turned on to restrict potentially dangerous users. The sites automatically provide these protective tools to kids under 15. Kids should share information only with people they know from the real world.
4.Itâ€™s imperative that your kids let you know if they arrange in-person meetings with people they meet online. Before any such meeting, you should confirm the personâ€™s identity, and you should accompany your child to the meeting in a public place.
5.When using P2P file-sharing programs, kids should not download files from users whom they donâ€™t know. They could be downloading infected files, pictures, games, and music that are inappropriate, or media files protected by copyright law. Kids should not allow users to upload their music files unless theyâ€™re certain that they have permission to share them. You can disable the upload feature so that your kids don’t inadvertently share files without permission. The University of Chicago offers instructions for disabling the upload feature in most file-sharing programs.
7.Only allow your children to use monitored chat rooms, and have them use a screen name that doesnâ€™t hint at their true identity. As with blogs and MySpace, kids should never reveal personal information or share photos. Make sure they understand that people can lie about who they are and that online friends are still strangers.
8.Teach your kids to ignore emails and instant messages from people they donâ€™t know. They should never open attachments they are not expecting nor click on links in messages. As with blogs and MySpace, they should not send out personal information. Configure your childâ€™s instant messaging application correctly to make sure it does not open automatically when they fire up their computer. Have them turn off the computer and disconnect the DSL or modem line when theyâ€™re not using it.
9.Use browsers for kids and kid-oriented search engines. Childrenâ€™s browsers such as Kid Browser 1.1 do not display inappropriate words or images. It comes pre-loaded with kid-safe web sites and pre-set word filters. You only need to make sure you approve, and review the default web sites and words. Kid-oriented search engines including Ask for Kids and Yahooligans perform limited searches and screen search results. There is a great list of engines at Search Engine Watch. The site also tells you how to turn on parental controls in regular search engines including Google, HotBot, and MSN Search.
10.Let your kids find appropriate and helpful web sites using lists put together by experts in the field. The American Library Association has a very good list, The ALA Great Web Sites for Kids. First Gov for Kids has government-related children sites and also lists groups of kid-friendly sites. Fact Monster is an excellent reference site, packed with information and homework help.
