I think we as parents should keep the family computer in a central location
where the child is not isolated, limit the time the child spends online, set
guidelines and rules for computer use, and learn about Internet technology in
order to better monitor their child’s online activity. Parents should get to
know their children’s cyberspace friends, just as they would want to know their
real-life friends. Us parents should always stress that people who are

information via e-mail, and to Never respond to messages or bulletin board items that are
suggestive, obscene, belligerent, or threatening, or make you feel
uncomfortable. Encourage your children to tell you if they encounter such
messages. If you or your child receives a message that is harassing, sexual in
nature, or threatening, forward a copy of the message to your ISP and ask for
their assistance. Parents should find out what controls are available through

Netscape, and Progressive Networks have joined forces to develop even more
sophisticated protective devices that should be available real
