Online privacy tips: Parental Controls help protect your kids online. You decide who they communicate with and which Web sites they access. This usually works by letting you block or approve specific web sites or categories of sites. Sometimes you can even set controls up so your child has to ask permission to access blocked sites. You set when and how long your kids can be online – usually you set controls by day, time of day or session length. With many parental control services you can also receive reports that detail your kids' online activities. You can also help your child interact with friends by creating a list of approved e-mail addresses and user names (for instant messaging). You can create separate controls for each child, and can usually get customized levels of protection based on your childrens' age. Some parental controls can even be accessed remotely. When you set up parental controls, the controls you've chosen for your child remain in place, even if they use a different browser on your home PC.
