Every parent wants to ensure that their children stay safe online, but exactly what steps to take depends largely on the ages of the children.
Very young children should be closely monitered, while teenagers can be given more free rein.
Computers with Vista installed include Parental Controls, which can be used to monitor computer usage or even limit the sites which can be visited.
Other monitoring options exist in the form of programs such as Net Nanny which can be used to simply monitor, but also restrict internet use. Additional useful information can be found at the Safekids website.
