We have tried to select websites that are kid friendly and fun. However we can only do so much to prevent unwelcome pop-up windows and banner ads. The Internet is saturated with content that is not always of one's approval. It is always possible for one link to take you to some undesirable location on the World Wide Web. Therefore, we recommend adult supervision while children are on the Internet.
