Here are the rules:

The iPod Touch is cool. For more reviews and chances to win go to the review/giveaway roundup.

No responsible parent would dream of dropping their young child in the middle of a city and walk away while telling the child to be careful and have a good time. The world holds amazing places for kids to explore but it also has significant dangers. Not everyone your child encounters will have your child’s best interest at heart. Wise parents create opportunities for their children to learn and explore while providing boundaries for safety.

The internet like the world has amazing opportunities for any child to learn and to explore. It also has significant dangers. Not everyone using the web will have your child’s best interest at heart. Norton the company that provides security so we can use the internet without nasty bugs and viruses attacking our computers now provides parents the technology they can use to give their children the freedom to use the internet safely.

Norton Online Family is so flexible to use parents can easily adjust the settings to allow greater access to the internet as their child matures. Norton Online Family down loads effortlessly. I had the program up and running on my daughters user account (with her 13 year old knowledge and permission) in about 3 minutes.

Parent's can track all web activity, questionable web activity, specific web sites, time usage, and social net works. You can block an individual site or a specific site category, allow the child on the site with a warning or just monitor the site. If you have more than one child using the computer, a parent can set time limits per individual user accounts, technology I would have given my eye teeth for 4 short years ago.

Norton Online Family is a great product: flexible, reliable, easy to use. Parents can adapt Norton Online Family to provide greater internet freedom as their children grow and mature.
