[PLUG] Child Proofing my Home Network

I have been using Norton ConnectSafe as a replacement DNS at the router.

Yes, that's operating only at the domain level, but easy and free.

I know you didn't ask for other advice but I would supplement it with a rule that "Children under age [X] may not use internet-connected devices without a adult in the room" and a discussion about not all objects in the house being collectively-owned; some are private and not to be touched by others without their explicit consent.

In my household, X is 12. There is a single desktop PC with the screen facing the kitchen for the under-12.
