  2. Limit the time your child spends on the internet.
  3. Keep family computers in public areas of your home.
  4. Install antivirus software on your computer.
  5. Adjust your computer’s web browser Security Settings to block pop-ups and location-sharing options.
  6. Set Parental Controls using a program like Windows Live Family Safety, a free program which allows you to restrict websites, games and downloads.
  7. Make it a habit to view the browser History on a regular basis to monitor the sites your child is visiting.
  8. Talk to your kids! Make them aware of why you have rules about their internet usage, and tell them what to watch for.
