If your child is using a Windows or Macintosh laptop or desktop computer, each operating system comes with a number of useful built-in parental control functions.
Each operating system provides a number of controls, but the most effective are the time limits. Decide on the start and end times of any day at which your child should have access to the computer and also implement a daily time limit.
As with all parental control systems, make sure that these computer limits are a reflection of your own Family Rules.
openDNS is a useful system to provide content filtering on your home network. You can set up openDNS with a few easy steps to ensure noone on your home network can get to inappropriate content.
A number of safe network services are also available now. These services create a new Wi-Fi network in your home which can be easily controlled with rules, filters and schedules as you decide. The best safe network we have tried is KoalaSafe.
