Protect Your Kids from the Internet and with the Help of the Internet

It's Your Job

Let's get one thing straight: it is my responsibility as a parent to protect my child from the internet. It is not the responsibility of rating services, AOL, or Disney to monitor what my child is exposed to. It is my job. We need to quit pointing the finger at everybody else and start taking responsibility for raising our own kids.

We have a tendency to want technology to parent for us. It's alright to use V-Chips, MPAA ratings, and internet filters as parenting tools, but don't view them as your replacements.

You need to check out every site I tell you about for yourself and evaluate it for yourself. Please provide feedback about anything you find.

Courageous Parenting

Parenting is not for wimps. It requires courage and a steadfast devotion to the Lord. CourageousParenting.org was put together by Prestonwood Baptist Church. It offers Pastor Jack Graham's messages on courageous parenting, plus resources and links to other sites about parenting.

Help for Parents

The RSACi system managed by Internet Content Rating Association (ICRA) provides consumers with information about the level of sex, nudity, violence, offensive language (vulgar or hate-motivated) in Web sites. Their website explains how to enable filtering with your browser. It also provides a tip sheet for kids about surfing the internet.

GetNetWise provides an online safety guide, tools for families, and a list of websites for kids.

700+ Great Sites is a list of internet sites "for kids and the adults who care about them." It is compiled by the Children and Technology Committee of the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association.

Kids-in-Mind rates movies and videos for parents. It assigns each film three distinct, category-specific ratings: one for Sex & Nudity, one for Violence & Gore and one for Profanity. Each rating is on a scale of zero to ten, depending on quantity (more F-words, for instance, will mean a higher Profanity rating, and so on) as well as context (especially when it comes to the categories of sex, nudity, violence and gore, since they are not as easily quantifiable as profanity). It also provides detailed descriptions about each rating to give the proper context. Kids-in-Mind does not review movies for quality. Because of the detailed descriptions, this site is for parents, not children.

Screenit.com also rates movies and videos for parents. It assigns ratings of extreme, heavy, moderate, mild, minor, and none to each of the following categories based upon the quantity and/or quality of the content:

  • alcohol/drugs
  • blood/gore,
  • disrespectful/bad attitude
  • frightening/tense scenes
  • guns/weapons
  • imitative behavior
  • jump scenes
  • music scary/tense
  • music (inappropriate)
  • profanity
  • sex/nudity
  • smoking
  • tense family scenes
  • topics to talk about
  • violence

Like Kids-in-Mind, Screenit.com provides detailed descriptions of the content to give each rating the proper context. Unlike Kids-in-Mind, it also provides a brief review of the movie without considering the objectionable content. Because of the detailed descriptions, this site is for parents, not children.
