Internet safety is a really big deal.
Did you know that teens spend an average of 9 hours a day online and tweens an average of 6 hours a day online? That is a lot of time to be exposed to inappropriate content.
Internet safety for kids is something we hear a lot of talk about and quite frankly it can be overwhelming. How are we parents supposed to monitor our kids online when they can be online anywhere? With access to free WiFi everywhere we turn that task of monitoring our child’s online presence becomes impossible and just too much. Instead of giving up you need to find the right tools to help and parental controls for the internet can help.
My kids are still young and we have been able to really monitor and oversee all internet usage, but those days are quickly ending. This past year my daughter had a research project and I sat with her as she researched to monitor the sites she visited and steer her clear of any questionable websites. I can not sit with my kids while they do research all the time, it is too much. I need to be able to give them access to the safe things and keep them away from the bad on the internet.
There are lots of products to help you monitor the internet for your kids and I finally found the one that meets all of my needs. It’s called Net Nanny. Net Nanny not only filters the internet according to your settings they also offer a social media filtering program.
How does Net Nanny work? Net Nanny is installed on your device, with Apple products it is as easy as downloading an app. The parent sets up profiles and chooses the settings. There are a number of categories like nudity, profanity, alcohol, tobacco, ect. You choose if these things are blocked or if your child gets warned. You can also set hours for when your child can be online and when they can’t. After you set up all your guidelines you install the app and then block other internet browsers. The idea is your child will only surf the web using the Net Nanny safe browser.
Net Nanny works on every device from PC and Mac to Android and iPhone. Many programs I have found only work on certain devices which can be really limiting. We have a wide variety of devices and a large number, Net Nanny allows me to add devices up to 10! Every day I can log into my Net Nanny account and see my child’s activities. I can see if they were blocked or warned and where they went that was a problem. Installing Net Nanny on my kids devices gives me so much peace of mind. Now I can feel secure that they will not come across anything inappropriate on the web either by accident or on purpose. And if they do go somewhere they shouldn’t it will be blocked and I will know about it.
My kids are not yet on social media but when they are I will be using Net Nanny Social. This amazing filter not only checks for things like profanity and nudity but it alerts you to questionable users or pictures they are sharing. Net Nanny Social looks for signs of cyber bullying too, it really is cutting edge technology for social media monitoring.
I really think that Net Nanny is the one internet filter parents need and I want you to try it out. Net Nanny is offering a free 15 day trial simply go to https://www.netnanny.com/mom/ to try Net Nanny out free.
I would love for you moms and dads to put Net Nanny to the test and please report back if it meets your standards. Net Nanny has passed all of my tests and I am feeling so much better about the wild west internet.
- 82% of children are exposed to inappropriate content before age 11
- 43% of teens were victims of cyberbullying in the past year
I am determined to keep my kids from joining those statistics by ensuring a safe internet experience and Net Nanny is who I am trusting to protect my kids online!
