When my parents downsized their company we had a number of extra computers around. They all eventually got parcelled out here and there but one remains and now it belongs to my children. I am surprised by how adept they have become at using it and love what a great learning tool it can be; but it has internet access and I don’t want them stumbling across inappropriate content. At the same time I don’t really want to install some sort of arbitrary filter. Did that once on my own computer and it was nothing but a hassle. (As a doula I might really need to do a search on breasts or any number of other ‘forbidden’ topics.) Anyway, at this point, not knowing how to read, my children don’t do a lot of searching so here is my solution. I set it as their homepage and because I created it I control the content. It’s not pretty but it’s straightforward enough that Brother can use it. Hopefully, your children can too. (I will add a link on the sidebar too.)
Also, I would welcome any of your own suggestions for kid friendly websites. I’m focusing on the 2 to 8yr range right now.
