Every parent wants to make sure they are tech-savvy enough to make sure their kids are being safe, and behaving well, online. You have to be a digitally literate parent if you want to properly help to raise the next generation of digital citizens!
But the idea of letting your younger children go online without supervision should terrify you! That’s why I’m today I’m going to show you three kid-safe browsers. Each of these make it safe for your children to go online while still letting them have having some fun!
Perfect for young ones, the KidZui broswer is packed full of content for your child to explore:
- All content accessible with the KidZui browser has been screen and approved by their staff, which includes teachers and parents
- The service boasts they give your child access to millions of safe YouTube videos, games and sites
- As a parent, you get a weekly activity report which will help you monitor and keep track of what your child is doing online>
An app for Windows PCs as well as Android phones and tables, Kido’z has a goal “to empower kids” by giving them a fun and safe online environment.
The environment itself is based on fun and colorful icons (see the image above) so kids will easily be able to tap things that look exciting to them, opening up new worlds of content.
As a parent, you can even personalize your own child’s Kido’z experience to meet their specific needs.
Available for a wide variety of platforms, including Windows, Mac, Android and iOS, Zoodles is an app based on creating personalized content for each child.
Zoodles content is designed to automatically scale with your child’s age and skill level, and offers educational games, videos, and even a play-along mode for parents to join in. The play timer can help you limit the amount of time your children spend using the app.
A cool premium feature for Zoodles allows you to promote only games or activities in a certain subject your child needs help with, like reading or science.
