Internet Tips for Parents

Maintain access to your child's online account. Randomly check their e-mail, letting them know why you do so.
Heavily watch your child's use of chat rooms.
Check what is on your child's computer. You can see where they've been by clicking the browser's history button on the browser toolbar, or by looking at cached Web pages that are saved automatically. If you need help, ask a knowledgeable person.
Keep the computer in a living or family room, not your child's bedroom.
Use blocking software
