KIDS AND THE NET

Let Internet Explorer Play Web Cop

The Annoyance:

I don't want my kids growing up to be fry cooks at McDonald's, so I got them a computer with a fast Internet connection. Now I'm afraid they'll become a little too worldly, too soon. How do I shield them from the Net's nasty, dark underbelly?

The Fix:

The first thing you can do is set up separate logons for each child, with settings appropriate to each age group. You'll also want to set yourself up as the adminstrator for that computer, so you can control what they can and can't do with it. (For the skinny on how to set up accounts, see Chapter 2, "One Computer, Many Eyeballs") If you share a computer, this will help keep them from eyeing your browser history or snooping around in your private files.
