Internet Parental Control Suggestions?
« on: January 24, 2020, 08:00:39 am »
Hi Everyone,

My name is Mitch, I am a homeschooling/ work-from-home / single mom of 2,  a 13-year old girl and a 3-year old boy. I am very happy to have found this site, hoping I could learn from others, show support and gain some advice as well on just everyday parenting.

Having said this, due to my profile above, my growing concern is the content of what my kids view online. Originally, it wasn't really a concern, until I read an article, and it appears like there are a lot of parenting controls already available in the market. With the law of supply and demand, this can mean that there is really a need already of parenting controls.

I am confident my kids listen to what I say, what to view on the internet and whatnot, but I understand too that they are still vulnerable to a lot of things.

I was thinking, just for precaution, why not try these parental controls. This is the article I read, https://thewiredshopper.com/best-parental-control-devices-routers-to-buy/. There are a lot of options. Has anyone here used parental controls? Any suggestions?

I am hoping to get something that's easy to use, suitable for my kids' ages and whatever parental control I am going to purchase, I would be really happy if it would have a tracking device.
 
Thank you so much in advance for your thoughts!

Mitch

Do you want to install an inconspicuous parental control program on a 13-year-old girl's laptop? Most likely, she will be able to notice it. However, she will not turn off the program that monitors and controls her interaction with content if she does not know the password. You should set a very complex password and remember it. What phone do your children use? My kids use iOS.
