The average 8- to 18-year-old spends about 90 minutes a day on the Internet visiting sites that have nothing to do with schoolwork, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation report.

But unless you're watching their every mouse click -- and considering one-third of teens and tweens have computers in their rooms, you might not be -- you likely don't know what your child is up to for that hour and a half.

While you may already have blocked a few websites from your child -- pornographic and other adult-themed sites are given -- there's a grayer shade of site that's not explicitly pornographic in nature that you might want to consider keeping your child from accessing.

Nathaniel plays on it but it is pretty rare. We use spellingcity.com for spelling words, pbskidsgo and he plays bejeweled if I log him onto my FB account, sometimes he tinkers on farmville or something like that. He used to play the Jumpstart computer games when he was younger but that didn't involved the internet. The computer has never been a 'must have' for him.

The kids are on the computer daily. No sites are blocked.

At this point the kids have been great about making good choices.
