The essentials of care taker jobs

Do you have internet at home? Is your child spending a lot of time surfing the net? Do you know what you child is doing on the net? You might think that you know what you child is doing and might trust your kid 100% but the world out there is a place that cannot be trusted. Do you want to know how you can keep an eye on you kids while they surf the net? This is where Cyber Nannies come in.

Cyber Nannies are virtual care takers. On the net you can find many organized sites that offer their services so that you know exactly what your child is doing on the net. Once you sign up with one of the many Nanny services available on the net you will have nothing to worry about.

Let us see how most nanny services work. Once you register for a service the service will kick in and restrict sites which has been pre specified. Take for an example pornographic sites, alcohol and drug related sites, fire arms and explosive related sites etc. The level of restriction depends on the nanny service and the amount of restriction you want to enclose. It is not possible to restrict all the sites regarding a topic because websites are created and published daily. Some nanny services are better than others. Some services require a registration fee while the others are free.

Before choosing services always go through the given description thoroughly. Read through the site; check the levels of security they offer. If you can try and get in touch with the people who are doing the service you will get a clear picture on what they are focusing on. Some services might focus more on restricting pornographic sites while other service might focus more on restricting fire arms and drug related sites. The best way to know is to ask questions. Ask about the level of security they use. Some times when you give a maximum restriction level it will also restrict some sites which are practically harmless. Then yet again you might not be satisfied with the amount of security provided.

Ask other parents or guardians if they are using any nanny sites. Most parents tend to use these services because of all the distractions that can affect the child. Some times you might have to pay some amount, but it might be worth while to do so provided that the service provides a well balanced security service.

Don't think that you're restricting you child. The World Wide Web is a source of information. There are so many things that can help or break your child. In the real world you can always keep an eye on you child. But when it comes to cyber space it might be a little bit more difficult to keep your child in line. So get all the help you can, as it's all for the benefit of your child.
