 Are you concerned about keeping your children safe while they are using the internet in your home, but you don’t know how to control it?

Would you like to restrict the access to certain content and internet access by time of day?


Do you have several devices in your household that slow down your wifi network when all in use?

 As parents we have enough to worry about without the dangers children face every day on the internet. Most of us do not have the time to sit beside our children, closely watching every keystroke and click they make while they are on line. Parental control software can keep a close watch instead, recording activities and blocking

materials that are unsafe for young audiences while still allowing them to take advantage of the wonderful resources on the internet. This two hour class, geared toward the nontechnical user, will help you keep your kids safe while exploring the internet.
