Your growing child’s cyber safety is important everyday, but take some time today to think more about safeguarding his or her interaction with others online.
Parents must be vigilant in watching what their kids consume online. Make sure your child isn’t stumbling across questionable photos, traumatic news, and any other content that are more suitable for mature audiences. GoGoNews.com is a new site dedicated to providing and sharing kid-friendly news while Net Cetera is a goverment-funded resource (online and print) that can help parents understand the changing internet landscape.
Visit Kidzui.com to download a free web browser designed just for kids that filters out adult content or try out United Parents Protection Service, a free software that will help parents monitor their children’s internet usage.
Also, keeping an eye on your kids may help you spot any potential signs of cyberbullying, a growing trend of online bullying. My Mobile Watchdog is an app that can help prevent cyberbullying from escalating.

Parents no longer have to be concerned about kids accidentally stumbling across inappropriate content on the web. Kidzui, the leading developer of award-winning Internet browsers for kids ages 3 to 12, is launching an upgraded browser: Kidzui K2. Like the original Kidzui browser, K2 will provide kids a fun, educational, and secure way to surf the web, but it will be easier to download and navigate, have a faster load response time, be updated for PCs and Macs, and have no membership regulations.
All the web content and websites that are part of the K2 browser experience will be pre-approved by teachers and parents to increase search functionality and improve learning. According to a representative at Kidzui, more new websites will be approved and added to K2 every month to “keep content fresh, engaging, and always safe for kids.” K2 will also provide access to ZuiGames.com and ZuiTube.com, games and video sites developed by Kidzui. Plus, parents can choose to monitor their children’s web activity by using parental controls and registering for weekly email reports.
So start hovering by your child whenever he’s on the computer and give yourself some peace of mind.
