Madison is now 5, but she's been online for quiet a while. She actually knows how to use a computer better than her grandmothers! My fear with letting her on sites like Playhouse Disney and Noggin is that it is super easy for her to end up where she shouldn't be. She has often clicked things she shouldn't. My fear has always been that somehow she will get herself on a porn site. The other problem we have is that if she ends up back on the desktop (aff) she ends up renaming files on us. She's actually just trying to get back to where she is, but it can be messy at times.
Now, the Kido'z Browser takes care of all the problems you'll have when you let your little ones online. The system blocks links, scripts, and any other attempts that lead to sites and content which have not been approved, preventing them being viewed by the children. The parental control account is a parents only, password protected area which allows the parents to manage their kid’s account and content. Now all content is sent through their moderators. However, you are able to adjust what your kids see. You can also easily add content like websites and videos (which for us is great because there is some great stuff on YouTube). The really cool part of that is that you can share what you added. The content will be added (after moderation) to the public content stream and others will have access to what you added! As you can see from the picture to the left also, it is super easy for the kids to navigate. They don't have to be able to read to use this browser either(which is great in my house!).
Best of all, this browser is free. It is a free download and comes with no spyware and no adware. You can easily protect your kids, and it won't break the bank for you! If you have little ones in your house (like me) who use the computer, I highly recommend trying this out.
