Why Use Parental Controls Software?
Parents maintain busy schedules that include preparing school lunches each morning, helping with geography projects, keeping the pantry stocked, and carpooling to soccer practice.
Most do not have time to sit and catch their breath, let alone sit and monitor their kids’ every keystroke and click during online activity. So sometimes online monitoring and protection does not receive high priority. However, online threats are real and dangerous.

Note from Russ Warner:
The Internet is an integral part of daily life. It is a wonderful source of information, facilitates commerce and work, keeps us up-to-date professionally and socially, and so much more. The darker side of the Internet is also just a few clicks away and there are many distractions and many who hope to corrupt or to victimize.
One effective way to stay safe online is to use tools to monitor browsing activity and social networking behavior. But more importantly, maintaining a level of open communication with children is also extremely effective and helpful.
