Their surfing is pretty well supervised, is only on the kitchen table whilst we are around and its only ever been things like Club Penguin up until now.
Today however my son managed to sign himself up for some game website by entering my wifes email address and answering the remaining questions to the login process. One part of me thinks 'well done for showing some inititive' the other is thinking 'what else has he been up to ?'
I cant be the only one in this position so do people have any suggestions on software or methods I can take to restrict their ability to sign up to websites etc. Keeping track of the pages they go too aswell would be nice.
Weve had a good discussion about what he should and shouldnt be doing, but as he has just turned 8 I dont know how much he really understands. I want my kids to have some independence when it comes to the internet and so I dont want either my wife or I to be standing over them whilst the learn about all this stuff but I dont want them getting it wrong, if you know what I mean.
We currently only use MSE as 'protection' on the laptop along with a server in the garage and an HTPC on the same network and all three are on XP currently.
So Id appreciate any suggestions.
