What would you do in order to keep your children safer? I am sure that you would do a lot especially if your kids happen to spend a lot of time on the Internet and these days this is something that many children do no matter how much you try to keep them away from it. The truth is that sooner or later you need to allow them to spend time surfing the Web or they will find their own way to do it themselves. It is up to you then to make up your mind what you want to do.
When your kids spend time on the Internet, they are likely to use an email to make friends or to exchange emails with their existing ones. It would be best for you to encourage them to use services such as KidsEmail that allow for a safe and monitored experience that don’t invade too much of their privacy. After all, this is something that you should want for your children, right? You don’t want them to feel like they are constantly being watched, but at the same time you want to be a victim of cyber bullying.
There are many features I like about KidsEmail. Time restrictions is probably my favorite feature as in my opinion if left alone kids can spend way too much time on the Net. There are many other activities kids should be able to get engaged in, and there will be time for the Internet later in their lives.
Without violating their privacy, you can select a setting that will allow you to receive a copy of each email that your child receives or sends. This way you will be able to get a glance at their activities and spot any alarming things that you might be concerned about.
Being able to block some senders is another feature I appreciate a lot, the same as being notified if somebody not on the mailing list tries to contact your child.
