The Internet provides your children with access to thousands of resources -- some educational, some entertaining, and some with content inappropriate for children. NASA encourages you to take time to monitor your children's use of the Internet by visiting sites with them, playing games with them, and setting firm guidelines about which types of sites they are allowed to visit.

We know you can't be with your children constantly while they are online. However, if you take the time to instruct them before they're allowed to use the computer, you may keep them from being exposed to pornography, inappropriate adult-focused content, and even child predators who often lurk in chat rooms. Usage-monitoring software is available commercially to help you with this task.

NASA will provide a wealth of resources that are safe, fun, and educational for your children. You can expect them to find reliable information on space-related topics, as well as games, Web quests, and even chats with NASA experts.

Please take time to review NASA's privacy and disclaimer statements.
