The internet dominates many peoples’ lives worldwide nowadays. More and more Generation Y parents are finding themselves keeping up with their children, who some people would refer to as the iTouch Generation, with the advancements in technology.
While the pros of using the internet are quite exciting, an aspect that isn’t so exciting is the thought of having to teach one’s kids the negative aspects of the internet.
Fortunately there are now kiddie search engines specifically designed to help parents monitor their children’s internet use as well as for education purposes. The good news is that search engines are much better at screening out websites that are harmful to children.
This search engine has been designed exclusively for 6 to 12 year olds. It’s a free, safe and fun way for kids to use a search engine.
Searches on this engine emphasise kid-related webpages. It is powered by Google Custom and uses Google SafeSearch Technology.

If you type in a word when you are doing a search online, a vast number of results can pop up, along with a wide variety of images which may or may not be related to your search. If a child is searching the internet for school work, the last thing that you want is for that child to stumble upon material that is far from age-appropriate content.
With Safe Image Search, images are screened using strict filtering to protect kids. The nature of various websites is also filtered to prevent children from landing on a site that may contain harmful material.
