No: Children need to educated on the dangers of the internet. Visiting inappropriate websites or contacting persons that are not known to them brings considerable risks. Computers should only be in supervised family areas with appropriate parental controls. Your children should know that you will check on the history of the websites visited.

Absolutely not!: Children need protection, not risk of predation.
