Set rules for usage. Monitor your child's use of the Net.
Common location. Place your home computer in a public part of the house where you can check the screen occasionally.
Downloaded Images. Check the hard drive periodically for inappropriate graphic images. Two of the most popular formats have the file extensions ".jpg" and ".gif".
Become an explorer. Explore the interesting and fun Web sites available for kids and bookmark them for easy retrieval.
Reach out and touch someone. The wonder of the Net is that children can reach out and communicate with others around the globe. However, your child should be made aware that people may not be who they say they are, and may only be posing as another child.
Personal information. Instruct your child never to give out any personal information such as home address, phone number or school names.
No meetings. Advise your child never to arrange a face-to-face meeting with anyone.
Tell a secret. Tell your child to inform you if they receive a threatening or obscene message.
Secret passwords. Never let your child reveal your password, and change your password periodically to avoid potential problems.

A small web browser which is configured entirely with children in mind. Kids Web provides basic features such as a start page which is separate from your main browser, and a nice interface which should keep your kids playing for hours. Kids Web loads to full screen, so your children can't accidentally load something they shouldn't from the start menu. A must for parents and children alike! NOTE: Kids Web is created using the TWebBrowser component, and therefore you MUST have Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.x installed on your system.
What's Kids Web? Well, besides being Today's Cool Tool, it's the first Web browser totally designed for kids. It hides the Status bar (no accidental program switchin'), its got links to some great kid Web sites built in, it's even got the bare minimum of buttons for little mousers to push. All in all, it's a great program for tykes with a yen to surf.
