Surfing the web can inspire young minds, ignite creativity and introduce tolerance of different cultures, just as easily as it can result in fruitless hours of mindless searching, or at worst, exposure to age-inappropriate material.In collaboration with her daughter, Lauren, Petro has compiled a selection of places on the Internet that are safe, fun and educational. The best of these sites are thoroughly reviewed, rated and categorized by age, with icons providing guidance at a glance. Each entry consists of a comprehensive description of content, information on commercial content or links, and advice on plug-ins such as RealPlayer TM and Apple Quick Time TM.This timely book includes a glossary of computer and internet-related terms, Rules of the Road for young web surfers, technical information for both Mac and PC users, information on both the Child Online Privacy Act and software filters that limit access to inappropriate material.
