    • On October 23, 2008, by Anonymous - The Keep the Internet Devoid of Sexual Predators (KIDS) Act passed by the legislature is a great 1st step in protecting kids but it is no substitute for parents taking firm and proactive steps to protect their children. The KIDS act is only as good as the perverts who may or may not follow its rules. These predators will most likely assume new identities. We know this because most likely they used fake identities before they were arrested. Don't think the government can protect our children - We have to do it ourselves. I installed Spector Pro from Spectorsoft.com after seeing their Editors’ Choice review in PC Magazine. Within a day I started seeing bad stuff. As a parent to two teenagers I was simply amazed by what I saw on my son’s PC. He was doing things I didn’t even think he was capable of and my daughter was constantly being stalked on MySpace. I immediately used Spector to block risky site categories (Adult), restrict when they both could go online (vs. just doing their normal homework) and even blocked a couple of rude people they were chatting with. Monitoring rocks. I see every chat, every search they do, every email, websites they visit and even see their screen shots. It’s not big brother thing – it is vital protection for our most important assets – our children.
