|Please tell me how I can block you tube from my son||lightening16||8/17/09 6:14 AM|
Is there any way that I can block You tube from coming up on my computer when my 11 year old son uses it? I just saw him watching a video last night about how to make "Meth"..very explicit. I would like to use You Tube myself so is there a way to put a password on the page so that he can't access it, but I can???

Do a google search, there is "parental control" software around that you can use. Your browser may also have some controls like that.

I would suggest doing separate users on the computer so you can monitor and have full control of his account. Use a password and he would not be able to access your account. You would be the computer administrator and can personalize and set up all kind of specific filters to keep his viewing material G rated.

VERY EASY !!!!
ok so what you do is go to start,
then go to control panel,
then go to internet options,
then go into the security tab,
then you'll see a red circle with a slash like in it that will say restricted sites,
go into it,
then go down to the right side and you will see sites,
click on the that tab,
then go to under where it says " Add websie to this zone" and put in www.youtube.com,
then press enter,
and your done !
If you have vista look into parental control,
go to "create new user account",
the enter a name,
press on block some websites,
then go to where it says allow some website and block some websites,
then press on the little choice thingy next to where i says allow or block only websites on the list,
then go to edit the allow and block list,
then enter the sites u allow and don't allow,
I hope this helps !!!
written my a 16 year old who knows how to miss with the pc !! :D

Google video is the same as YouTube. All the videos in Google video are made up of search results from YouTube, AOL video, Yahoo video, etc.
Oh, and YouTube is not all bad. Just watch your kid when he is on to make sure he dosen't watch another "How to make Meth" video.

It is not harsh at all to block/monitor YouTube if you feel there are things that you do not want your child watching. It is not easy being a parent so I encourage to go with your gut instinct if that is blocking website. I will give you a little suggestion related to kids getting mad. They will get over it. Each time he gets mad and you give in, then he remembers that he got his way, so he will keep getting mad each time. Men and boys are really simple, so it does not take much to recondition their though process.

"Do you think it is too harsh to block You Tube and I want to block Gamefly too."
Don't give it a second thought. Not being able to see YouTube videos at home isn't the end of the world, in spite of what your son will tell you. ;)

Geez, give the kid a break. I'm sure he just wandered on YouTube and "How to make your own Meth" just came up randomly and he just started watching it.
lol but blocking YouTube is a bit extreme.
