Family Friendly Websites that Help Keep Your Children Safe

Posted on 09-22-2014


The days of reading newspapers, writing letters, purchasing albums, and movies have changed significantly. Children today regularly use the internet for educational purposes, games, social media, and entertainment. While there are many beneficial aspects of the internet, there are many safety issues that can be a threat to your child’s security and innocence.

As parents, we seek to protect our children from internet dangers. Here are several websites that are excellent resources to help keep your child safe.

Pluggin Online

This is a publication designed to offer families insight into the world of popular entertainment while giving them helpful tools to understand, navigate and impact the culture in which they live. Pluggin Online offers content reviews on music, videos, games, and movies. Some reviews offer details such as drug and alcohol content and crude language.

Net Nanny

This website intuitively determines what is harmful based on your settings. Net Nanny protects your child, sends you reports and even texts to alert you of danger. This website protects families and helps them manage their experiences with digital content. Parents are given visibility and control in managing a child’s online experience.

Netsmartz Kids

This website teaches children about internet safety through fun songs, characters and interactive games. The site does not link to any outside sites. It is safe and easy to use.

Safety Land

Excellent for daycares, this website features an interactive city that teaches Internet safety. Children help the Safety Land hero catch a bad Internet character by searching buildings in the city and answering Internet safety questions.

Family Online Safety Institute

This is an international, non-profit organization which works to make the online world safer for kids and their families.

There will always be a need to protect childcare and preschool aged children who have online access. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Greensboro, we take every area of safety very seriously. When your child is enrolled at Kids 'R' Kids, they will have a special enrollment code which will link their account to their classroom and curriculum. Through our partnership with the award-winning early learning website ABCmouse.com, the Kids 'R' Kids curriculum includes hundreds of computer-based interactive activities that children love and which also provide safe opportunities for parents to be actively involved in their child's learning.

Come by for a visit and see for yourself the steps we take to safely enjoy the befits of technology.
