Your Family Needs Internet Filters

by Kevin E. Outland on July 15th, 2013 in Parents

So your 5th grade daughter is online looking for the latest scoop on the boy band One Direction. She types in a web address, accidentally misspells it, hits enter and WHAM! She’s looking at a totally naked guy and girl doing something you hoped you wouldn’t have to explain to her for a couple more years. Well, the sex talk is going to have to take place a little sooner that you hoped because she’s got questions.

It’s no surprise this type of thing happens. 90% of kids, ages 8 to 16, have viewed porn online, and often it happens by accident. A simple misspelled word and a mouse click can send your children into a world of graphic pornography. The images can become seared into their memories and could lead them into a lifelong addiction to porn. What can we do to avoid this potential tragic outcome.

Get a filter! Internet filtering software blocks your computer from accessing porn and other inappropriate websites. So when you child misspells a web address that could lead to porn it stops the offending webpage from loading. As I speak to parents at churches and schools I am amazed at how many of them don’t have Internet filtering software. They either don’t know what it is or just never thought about getting one. I’ve had several parents tell me they have the software and when I ask them what they have they tell me Norton Anti-Virus.  Their computer might not get a virus but that software doesn’t do one thing to stop their kids from going to porn sites. So there’s a lot of confusion or ignorance about Internet filtering software among parents. I’ll try to solve that right now.

First, you absolutely need Internet filtering software if you have an Internet connection in your home. It’s one of the best things you can do to protect your children from Internet dangers. Second, don’t wait another minute to get it.

What software should you get? Here are a couple of great options that work on PC’s, Mac’s and iOS (Apple’s “i” devices): our X3watchPRO; SafeEyes; or NetNanny.

Now go get an Internet filter and help protect your family!

    Something to bear in mind though: Filters work great for stopping someone from accidentially coming across porn. That’s all they are good for. Against someone actively seeking it, all a filter can do is buy a little time before they get through.

    • Jenny

      We use safe eyes and I’ve found that it works very well to help protect someone who actively searches for it when used properly. My husband is a recovering addict. He’s come a long way in his struggles, but on occasion he struggles and looks for loopholes in our filtering. He might find it once, but the program adapts and stops him the next time he tries the same or similar searches. The only place we have a problem is with facebook. He has found a loophole there. But it’s the only place. It’s worth every scent.

      • Corvus Suri

        Then he isn’t very good at bypassing filters. If he knew the tricks, he would know that a linux boot CD can bypass any software-level filter with ease.

        • I would hope you wouldn’t post where to get free crack on a crack recovery website. Lets not tell porn addicts how to get to their drugs.

    • I agree, Corvus! All the behavior-modification is not worth much if it isn’t accompanied by change of the heart. We have to work on both!

    • True. For parents with young kids though a filter can mean the difference between having “the sex talk” when they want to versus when they have to.
