Parental Control Software Links
This is a page I wish I had no need to write, however, one of the responsibilities of living in a free society is that sometimes individuals within the society abuse the privilidges accorded them. Then you are left with few options:
  1. Devise a system whereby your right to NOT be insulted by their actions is not violated.
  2. Allow a government agency to decide which priviledges everyone is allowed.
      I really don't believe government is up to the task and the Supreme court agrees so we are left with option # 1

      I hope that these programs will be of use to everyone that has children at an impressionable age that wants or feels the need to use them. I can only offer links to pages currently as I have no experience with this software, yet, But I will soon as I consider it a responsibility I have been remiss in.
