Beside business owners that sometimes block websites considered to be unproductive and inappropriate for browsing at work, the most common usage of Internet blocker is for parental control. Web blocker software helps parents protect their children from the online threats. Here comes the question what kind of parents uses Internet blocker? Although there are some voices stating that only religious types or overbearing parents do, our opinion and experience shows us that this is not true. This kind of software is used by people from every layer of society, with a wide range of views, attitudes and moral standpoints.
People considering using web blocker applications are aware that this is not a strict measurement and these applications are flexible. When I’m saying this I am thinking about programs like Application Blocker Pro which can be set to allow the child to use the computer or the Internet only for a small period of time daily, or to allow using the computer for a longer period but only block websites or restrict access to certain applications and chat. Here is where the scheduler option included in the software comes.
Children, and not only children, are using Internet more than ever before. They log on Internet for playing games, searching help for their schoolwork, chatting with friends or just for fun. Everyone should be aware that, like the real world, the online world is made up of all kind of people. Some of them might be decent and kind while others might be mean and rude. Also, one should be aware that beside the informative and educational role that Internet has, it also provides a lot of images and information that every parent would agree not to be suitable for children.
I would like to refer now to young children’s parents that consider that giving their children access to computer from an early age will give them a head-start in their education. This might be truth but the disadvantages of using computer and Internet from very early age are many more. The most important is the fact that children spent a lot of time behind a computer (either for playing online or for chatting with friends) instead of playing real games that involve movement and socializing.
We strongly believe that the best way to protect your child online is to show him/her how to use the Internet safely. In this respect, we have prepared for you aaimed to advice you how to prepare your child for the online activity.
Parents should control their young child's computer activity by choosing to block websites inappropriate for their age and only let them use the computer/Internet very selectively. Easy to say and now easy to do thanks to web blocker applications available on the market.
