I guess I am now the senior priesthood holder in our family. As the family patriarch I feel a great responsibility to help our family members have a way to use the Internet without being exposed to all the worldly things that are there. The Internet is just like TV. It has a lot of good and a lot of bad. As parents I would offer to you this guide to help you have a safe place for your children to learn. The Internet can be like having the Library of Congress right in your front room if it is used correctly. On the other hand it can be much worse than TV if mis-used because it is completely uncensored. Pornography is everywhere. If you just let your children use the Internet unsupervised, it would be like putting them unassisted in the streets of a large city with no "street smarts". It would not take much for them to get hurt.

So I offer this web page to you as a member of our family to help you make wise choices in what your children see and do on the Internet. These are family and children 's web sights that I have found that I would recommend to you. I will be constantly adding to it as I find new ones, so that is why I decided to just make it a separate page.

I have also added this "LAST UPDATED" date, so you can tell if it has changed since you checked it last.

NOTE: Because web pages come and go so fast, some of these links may not work any more. If you find one that does not work please email me so I can remove it.
