Internet is strictly for informational use and not to be used for social sites. As well as not giving out personal information.

My boys are still a little young to be on the internet. My oldest is using a computer at school, so we have links to the pages and sites the school uses and we have those set up under his own log-in on the computer and our log-ins are password protected.
Thanks

When they were little I was always with them and we used kid sites only. As they got older, my son wasn't really interested in it and my daughter just played games. They were always monitored and now they are teens and are still monitored pretty much. My daughter is in college so she uses hers mostly for school and my son looks up how to play songs on his guitar! :)
