How To Keep Your Internet Explorer Browser Kid-Safe and Filter Out Bad Sites
The World Wide Web is sometimes the WILD Wide Web, much of it to which you don’t want your kids to be exposed.
Of course you may trust your kids, but little things like misspelled urls, innocent searches with keywords with double meanings, etc can lead your kids down the wrong path — all due to no fault of your child. . .
This is why it is a good idea to consider installing filtering software plug-ins that make for a kid-safe browsing experience. The Parental Control Bar is a free online filtering plug-in software distributed by the WRAAC.org – Website Rating and Advisory Council.

There may be sites that are automatically blocked that you feel are ok to surf. You can easily create your own personalized “Safe List”
