Whether you are sign up with Verzion DSL, Comcast Cable or Dialup internet service, you are likely already using parental controls on your computer which limit what your children do while they are online. Using filtering software and watchdog programs can be a very good idea. You may also want to configure the parental controls on your operating system and browsers as well. This assists with preventing damaging information from ever reaching your children. The parental controls offered by some internet companies are also very effective, but they don’t always cover all the bases. You need to consider other programs and applications that may connect to the internet and ensure these connections are protected as well.
