My six year old daughter is very intrigued and curious about the internet. She knows and understands that having access to the internet is something different from just using a PC. I would like to introduce her to the net, but fear exposure to unnecessary and adult sites. How can I restrict her access to specific sites of her interest?
You can set up a different log-in on your computer for your daughter that is separate from your own. There you will have the option of setting up parental controls.
For the most part, it would probably be wise to monitor her for a while when she is on the internet. There are some sites that can still be dangerous for kids even though they are supposedly kid friendly.
The internet is probably the most powerful inventions of mankind. If used for productive and educative purposes, it can be very beneficial. Your child will develop communication and typing skills and will learn to express herself by using the internet.
