They're -- for knowledge and experimentation.
On line about what we've done is.
We put a protective loop around mountain and this is really at the core foundation of what ever lupus is -- for.

And you've got some tips for keeping kids safe online or a run through a few of these.
-- setting rules first of all what do you mean by that.
Well I think if you if you look at it kids' behavior online right now.
They're spending one and a half to two hours daily and that is a tremendous amount of time for kids to get themselves in trouble.
And so if you don't have rules in your own family about what they can and can't deal and if you're not looking.
At them and saying yes you can go on this site but she can't go on math site they can be really getting themselves in trouble.
And it's so and you also talk -- signing a contract.

That the kinds the issue and that's -- say this is a privilege you have to -- the right to be online.
And another very important point it seems to me is this limiting computer used to the communal parts -- -- -- not easy to do.
When everybody's got a laptop and they can just run off to their bedroom or whatever but you say that's very important keep it in a communal pot.
Presumably so they can keep an eye on what that what sites they're -- Well I make us back to you if you don't start early it's very difficult to -- rules.
Into your home so if you're allowing your children already.
-- they're communication devices and it really standard it stems from not just your Internet device not just your PC or Mac but all sell it yourself found.
And if you're not asking your children to see what they're -- online.
How can you expect when they get older for them to share that we care.
Sell -- -- a positive to get that computer to get the cell phones out in open space you can see exactly what they're doing.
