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 !!!

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.

Lightening16, you block WHATEVER you don't want him to see.  You are in charge of that, now, boy's life and what will become a man, if you stay strong and keep him safe.  If you don't- he may never grow to be a man.  Harsh? Maybe- but true.
Protect that young boy no matter what.
The man he'll become is depending on YOU.... Don't let him down.

Kindly use  k-9 web protection (i use it in my home in three computers,support Mac also)  you can find it here i highly recommend it :

http://www.getk9.com/

::::::::::::::

K9 Web Protection is different from other solutions for the home in several important respects:

  • Service-based filtering – Blue Coat's filtering database operates as a service. It receives and rates over 80 million requests every day, making it the most accurate content filtering database available. This accuracy is important in protecting your family, given the Internet's rapid changes and growth. Plus, there is no database to download. K9 Web Protection won't clog your Internet connection, get "stale" or out of date, or slow down your computer like other products do.
  • Dynamic Real-Time Rating™ (DRTR) – Blue Coat's patent-pending DRTR technology is a very powerful element in our solution, and is vastly different from the old-fashioned "key word filtering" that is so frustrating to users. Using a method of statistical analysis and artificial intelligence to rate new or previously unrated Web pages, DRTR can determine the category of a URL on the fly, without human intervention. However, DRTR only renders a rating when it is confident that it has reached an accurate conclusion.

    We've focused DRTR on recognizing the kinds of categories most likely to be blocked. In particular, DRTR is highly accurate in blocking pornography and other "adult content" sites. This focus for DRTR is particularly important because these kinds of sites are constantly – daily and even hourly – popping up on the Internet, and no static database can keep up.
  • Automatic updating – Automatic updates of the K9 Web Protection application ensure that you are always protected by the latest features. For example, in Spring of 2005, we added two new categories to our solution: Spyware/Malware Sources, and Spyware Effects/Privacy Concerns. By electing to block sites in these categories, your computer's rate of infection by unwanted software can be reduced dramatically. We have a variety of new features planned, and your K9 installation will automatically receive updates that include them.
  • Efficient caching – K9 Web Protection is a product from Blue Coat. Blue Coat is recognized world-wide as expert in high-performance caching and secure proxy technology. We take advantage of that expertise in K9, so your Internet experience is as fast, reliable, and safe as we can make it.

Unlike other filtering solutions, K9 Web Protection ensures the highest level of protection by building the most relevant ratings database available. Its effective coverage reaches more than one billion Web pages. With K9 Web Protection, you finally have a chance to build a family-safe Internet experience for your home, simply and easily.
