Review your kids' web history for these sites right now

Review your kids' web history for these sites right now

The internet can be a great tool for learning. There are numerous educational tools online that will teach you things like how to speak a foreign language or even basic math skills. We recently told you about an app designed to teach kids how to write computer code.

With over 1 billion websites online right now, the possibilities are endless. Unfortunately, this can lead to some scary places.

A recent report says children are accessing porn websites younger than ever before. According to the report, one out of every 10 visitors to porn video websites is under 10 years old.

That means that 22 percent of everyone under 18 visiting porn sites is younger than 10. Ages 10 to 14 account for 36 percent of online video porn consumption of people under 18. And ages 15 to 18 comprise the other 42 percent.

One reason this is happening is how easy it is to access these sites. Most websites that contain pornography make users confirm that they are at least 18 years old before they can enter the site. However, they don't have a way to actually verify the visitor's real age.

With the ease of access, it seems the responsibility of keeping children off those sites falls on parents. It's a good idea to use a parental control tool that will block access to unauthorized sites.
