Post Shouldn't We Be Protecting Our Children From Porn?

A federal judge on Thursday dealt another blow to government efforts to control Internet pornography, striking down a 1998 U.S. law that makes it a crime for commercial Web site operators to let children access "harmful" material.

Does anybody think our kids should be watching porn ? I think not now not ever but I am sure there are those that would think it to be a learning tool for kids. I think those same folks do not have kids.

Yes, we should be protecting our children from porn! When I caught my son at 12 years old looking at porn on the computer, I installed NetNanny. The computer would shut down everytime he went to a site he was not allowed to view. There definitely should be laws to protect our children from porn.

I've seen those kinds of programs. I don't care for them much because programs don't always know how to distinguish a good website from a bad one without having you fill out a list of authorized sites (which can get very cumbersome). Most programs do a search through the meta data of the site which often nails them down pretty accurately. Unfortunately, there are some programs that will lock out otherwise proper websites in this manner. For an example, educational websites about the reproductive system or drug/alcohol awareness may get blocked. Some programs like to block websites that are religious in nature (how's that for mind-blowing?). And you may not notice that a LOT of porn sites are greatly reducing the ASCII data on their pages and using graphics and image mapping in order to slip around those very programs. Computer programs cannot recognize the content in one big graphic with links embedded in it. The sites look the same, but without the text-based data in the pages, your NetNanny might not even know what kind of site you are looking at. This is how many spammers are getting around spam blockers. Instead of sending text e-mails, they are sending large pictures with all of the text in them.

My favorite method is not to have the computer enforce your child's Internet experience, but install a program that will do periodically random screen dumps that you can check to see if your child has gone to a site that he/she shouldn't be going to. Such programs will take screen shots randomly and hide them somewhere on the computer. If you find a large screen shot from a porn site among them, the jig's up. This way, the computer only monitors your child's experience and you are the one who enforces it.

We blocked quite a bit at the router and controlled their ip address with it. It worked for years but not all sites can be caught so we just monitored with VNC.

everyone in the house had each their own computer and I would have never had it any other way. I am not one for sharing my computer the few times I did I always came back to some thing changed, even with a different login.

It's also a good tool to use when they need punishment, take it away for a week and watch the child behave differently.

It is true NetNanny did block some good sites, but he would call me in the room and I would allow the site. I did not have time to stand over him the whole time he was on the computer. I felt at ease since he did have his own computer in his room. NetNanny was very effective. When he was a freshman in college he asked if it could be taken off since he was 18. I agreed. I bet he made up for lost time.

Should we be protecting our kids from porn? Probably.

Should the Federal government be protecting our kids from porn? Definitely not.

The government sticks their noses too much where it doesn't belong.

I personally see our country going to sh1t period with all the freedoms we have taken away from us in the past years.

What ever happened to parenting..... Are parents so weak minded that they need help from government for control of their kids?

I do not see it as anyone's job other than my own to watch what my children are doing on the internet.. It is my job to protect them,nurture them, govern them, teach them, and so on and so forth. You should not rely on the government for this, they did not have the children. Furthermore, I don't want their intrusiveness into my life.

America is built on the back of the family. Parents should be looking after their children. I think that home school for the first few years should get a tax break. Now as far as the government goes "Furthermore, I don't want their intrusiveness into my life." I agree with that too T-Belle. What do you think about home school ?

I did half a year of home school when I was in high school. I didn't care for it myself. Maybe I just needed the classroom motivation when I was a kid.

What do I think of homeschooling? I think it is fabulous if you can do it and if your child can handle it. Most of the public schools are just crumbling and most people can't afford private schools. Myself, I want my children in an environment outside of public school. Just a preference my husband and I have. We have one in college (pre-med), one about to graduate from Calvary, and a homeschooler. It works for us!
