Quite often as a children’s pastor I get asked by parents what I recommend to keep their kids safe online. This is an important question for parents to ask. The average kid is first exposed to pornography on the internet at age 11. And beyond pornography, there is a lot of other junk online as well.
There are also a lot of great tools out there to protect kids, and one that I always recommend is Covenant Eyes (http://www.covenanteyes.com/). The thing I love about Covenant Eyes is that it is more than a filter, it also provides accountability so parents can see when and where their kids are trying to test the limits.
If you have never been heard of Covenant Eyes before I would encourage you to watch the video below to see what it is all about. Or you could simply come out to parenting class this Sunday that Pastor Clark and I are teaching. We are going to be meeting in Room 106 at 10:15. This week we are talking about how parents can monitor and have good conversations with their children regarding the internet, cell phones, television, video games, the whole deal.
Here is the Covenant Eyes promo video….
