online safety for kids?

So Jane, who just turned 11, is suddenly really into getting online. I am trying to figure out a good safety filter to put on her computer (she got her own laptop from her grandparents last Christmas)and honestly, it looks to my untrained eye like AOL offers the best parental controls for kids and tweens. But of course, there are so many reasons to despise AOL ;-)

Anyway, I really do want to put some safety measures in place online for Jane and Elliot (who is 8 and also starting to like playing around online). I just know she will soon stumble onto something I ***really** do not want her to see.

Anybody got any great advice on this?

Well, you can start by managing your user account privileges through Windows XP, then install a software package of your choice to censor websites to your liking.
