Safekeeper is an important new digital tool for parents helping them supervise their children and teens Internet usage and keeping them safe online.
The Educational Cyberplayground informational website advocates strong parenting involvement when it comes to teaching kids Internet Safety Rules, saying:
"The bottom line is that your kids do NOT have a right to privacy when it comes to internet or computer use, and you as a parent have a right and a responsibility to see to it that they're not getting into anything they shouldn't be getting into.Safekeeper helps parents become digital parents by providing software designed to protect your kids online. Safekeeper uses smart filters to make sure your kids surf the Internet safely and monitors usage which you can later view to see exactly what they do, where they go...as well as all IM and chat room chatting.
If it's illegal offline, it's illegal on the Web.
Children from 0 - 16 are entitled to exactly as much privacy as they can safely handle. In the case of the Internet, that means none. Children should be told up front that their communications will be monitored on an ongoing basis. This is a condition of their use of the Internet. If they don't like it, they can find something else to do with their time.
Parents need to know where their children are, who they are hanging out with at all times. The internet is the same as mall or anwhere else on earth. Parents are allowed to know where their child is on the internet and what they are doing there. And it's pretty easy to keep them in line, because the alternative for them is to not be permitted to use your machine -- end of story.
Too many parents are afraid to take control of their child’s computer. They’re afraid of their kids. They somehow think because technology is involved, they’re no longer the parent. You’re the parent. If you don’t like it, unplug the computer. If they don’t follow your rules, no Internet at all. If you’re not the parent and if you’re not going to step in, no Web site on earth is going to be able to help your child be safe."
