Internet Filters And Parents


It Takes A Village to Raise a Child.

Most of us have heard of this book by Hillary Rodham Clinton. The village that is being spoken of is the government. The title gives the opinion that you can’t raise your child without our governments help.

I’m not sure where you stand on this, but as for me I don’t want or need the government telling me how to raise my child. With that said I want to discuss the area of the Internet. Some lawmakers and local politicians would say “you must allow full access to the Internet to those who would want it” this is including children.

This is the parent’s responsibility not the government, we as parents must control what and what not our children have access to. Parents don’t need big brother to raise their children and to admonish parents who limit or restrict what their children have permission to view. The Internet is a vast domain of wonder and excitement; it is also a place of danger.

Do not fall prey to those who would mock and scold you for filtering what your kids have access to. You have the right and the responsibility to do so. Open your eyes and stop, look and listen to what your family is doing on the Internet.
