THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS:......... Lust........
You need a censoring software to minimise the chances of your children and yourself entering restricted (=sinful) sites; to say that the word "restricted" here is a euphemism is obviously an understatement. A number of censoring software are available such as Cyberpatrol, SurfWatch, Safesurf, etc.. You might consider purchasing one.Some Internet screen operatrors allow users to first test their products for a certain period of time. This try-before-you-buy is quite a common practice in the world of the Internet.
Downloading the censoring software may take a while, but it sure is worthwhile....especially when your children are left to explore the cyberspace all by themselves..which in itself is a risky practice; how some parents can allow their children unrestricted access to the internet is difficult to comprehend.
Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe (in me) to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were put around his neck and he were thrown into the sea.
- Mark 9:36,42.
Some of the censoring software available are:
This software offers layers of protection to block out offensive/ sinful material. It can also be useful in keeping your phone bills low.KinderGuard.
KinderGuard screens material from Web and gopher sites, ftp archives, news groups, and even mailing lists. When used in the home, the screening mechanism can be used to prevent access to inappropriate material. In the office, the screening device can be used to prevent employees from accessing objectionable sites via a corporate Internet account.SafeSurf.
Dedicated to make the internet safe for your children and yourself.Surfwatch.
This software blocks explicit materials based on a built-in updateable database.
For more similar softwares which are available you may also like to see the page in Catholic Online on Internet Filtering Software.
Censoring softwares does not, however, guarantee foolproof safety from pornography and the like for your child and yourself. Regular prayers as well as constant vigilance and greater concern and awareness (After all, what are you, a parent, for?) for your child's daily activities are also imperative to ensure that the child grow up to be a true and faithful christian.
You may also like to subscribe or provide active support to the commendable efforts of organisations which actively promote genuine and traditonal christian morality. You can also hope and pray that your local parish, church or clergy will wake up and do something about it.
they shall see God.
- Matthew 5:8
