afesurfer.org knows you need help “protecting your kids online and teaching them safe browsing habits.” This site, “jam-packed with games, news, and resources,” helps keep kids entertained while pointing them to sites they can safely enjoy on the rest of the Web.
Exploratorium.edu, the home of San Francisco’s Exploratorium museum, “is an excellent resource for kids interested in finding out how the world around them works.” Youngsters can read primers on topics in biology, astronomy, and other scientific fields.
