Our goal is to provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions about your family's Web use. As a parent, only you can judge what constitutes a positive and educational online experience for your children. We're trying to provide the material for you to make educated decisions for your child, but remember--not making a decision is a decision.

You don't encourage your kids to talk to strangers, especially if you're not around. And you try to keep an eye on what your kids are doing, what they're interested in, how they're spending their time, and with whom they're spending their time.
