Hi, my son is 11 years old and in 5th grade. Can someone please tell me how to set parental controls on the internet or can we block certain websites? On google, they can look up anything. It's scary what they're easily exposed to these days and I believe kids are becoming desensitized.
Just today I read about two 12 year old girls who killed another girl after being inspired by a character on a website called creepypasta.wikia.com. I checked out the website and it's disturbing. It features a scary video depicting Bart Simpson's corpse and Squidward's (Spongebob) suicide. It also shows a scary-looking gas mask shaped like Mickey Mouse's head. Personally, I think they should ban this website, but then it would violate freedom of expression. I just want to know if there is a way I can block certain websites. Can someone please help.
