Computer and internet have become necessary evils, as far as young children are concerned. They are exposed to the computer at a very early age. As this is the age of imitation and possibilities, they want to try it too. Often, even parents who control television viewing rigorously, give in to kids demand for computer easily.
Indeed, computer games are a lesser evil among it and TV. At least, the activity is not as passive as watching TV, and given the amount of software available for kids today, it is a much more enriching educative experience too! Also, learning compute skills early will come handy form their school work later on.
For kids less than five, parental control on websites is actually un-necessary, as they can’t surf the net themselves. The role of parents is to find good, age-appropriate websites for kids, that are both fun, and educative. I am giving you a list of websites that I find are very captivating for the young audience.
