WEB SAFETY FOR PARENTS

Recently I asked my daughter how she does things with the web use and her 4 children. She said that it is hard but she and her husband have a few applications that they use.

One application limits the amount of time that the kids are on the Internet and then the Internet goes off. The kids are not very happy about this but their parents feel much better.

Other applications have greater parental controls. It is good to read and shop for the best  controls for your children’s computer use as parents can’t be everywhere to monitor their kids’ time and use of the computer.

When my children were younger, it was monitoring the TV shows and radio but today this includes the Internet, as well as, computer games.

Being a parent gets harder all the time.      

 

MEMORIAL DAY

Talking with our children about Memorial Day is sharing part of ourselves and remembering those in our family that served in the Armed Forces for our country.

Attending a memorial service or the laying of a wreath at a memorial make the holiday  more meaningful.

Remember those that have died in service to our country so that we have peace in the USA!

Can you figure out how Ginny, Emily, and Corky got in our fruit basket?

THIS IS A MONTAGE!

We took the furkids’ pictures and cutout the background. Then we put each one on a picture of an old-time fruit basket, added an old card note, and merged the objects together to form ONE picture.

We had several adults ask us how we got the dogs to stay like this in the basket-they thought that we used dogs and a real basket!

You all can do this with your own pictures by using a photo editing application. It takes a lot of practice but over time your pictures will look real, too. Be sure that you use YOUR OWN pictures and NOT those that belong to others. (copyrighted by others)
