Instant Answers for Kids Using Safe Search

KidzSearch - Google Safe Search

KidzSearch Instant Answers is a new search feature specifically designed to help students find the information they need. It integrates many different sections of KidzSearch to help kids discover what they are searching for, including younger students who often have difficulties doing online searches to find relevant content.

Instant Answers provides high quality reviewed information related to all searches next to the regular KidzSearch safe search results, such as the student encyclopedia with over 200,000 entries designed just for kids with simplified articles.  Another example of Instant Answers is for KidzTube, which contains over 50,000 handpicked high quality learning videos. Other items include educational games, related topics, AI tutoring, and more.

The information presented via KidzSearch Instant Answers is visual with large images and simplified summaries. It also has links to get more details. This can help students get a general feel about a topic.  While it might directly answer their question, it can also help a student do a more refined search, or to expand their search in areas they were not aware of before seeing the topic information.

AI Search Results

The search results use artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced algorithms to provide a virtual tutoring experience while they do their online research. The AI system might show them the answer to a math question and offer step-by-step tutoring on how it was solved or give a related student-focused article. It is like having a virtual tutor with them when they do their online research.

Performance is very important. With each search, multiple technologies go to work in the background to integrate content in fractions of a second. The entire system has taken years to develop and will keep improving as the company moves towards adding AI tutoring to the online student search experience in a seamless manner.

Students often have a lot of quality educational resources, but they may not know where to start. KidzSearch Instant Answers provides a solution to this problem by moving high quality reviewed resources to them. An API is also being developed that can allow companies to tap into these features to help power their educational applications.

Whether you are a student, or a parent committed to staying informed about internet safety technology, the safe search tools we provide in partnership with KidzSearch is our highest priority.  Safe research resources allow anyone of any age to seek out the information they need with a much lower risk of being exposed to harmful content.

A Brief History of Google SafeSearch

Google is over 20 years old.  On November 11, 2009, a few years after becoming the world’s most popular search engine, Google introduced the ability for users too lock their basic level of SafeSearch for Google’s web and image searches. On December 12, 2012, Google removed the option to turn off the filter entirely, requiring users to enter more specific search queries to access inappropriate content.  However, the safe search filtering was and remains to be a basic level of filtering.

Safe Search Kids was founded on July 16, 2009 to provide Google basic filtering from our website, but it was only in recent years that we partnered with KidzSearch to use their strict filtering API to block bad search terms and spelling variations that are likely to lead to bad websites. In addition, 1000’s of website domains are blocked from appearing in the results that many other parental control filters allow.  In addition, the whole search experience, with kid-focused meta-content/results and a more visual experience is improved with a search designed for them.

We encourage schools and parents at home to use us as a one stop gateway to safe search tools for the web, images, wiki for kids, and videos.

What Happened to Kids Click Web Search?

Kids Click Web Search

The Kids Click website at KidsClick.org no longer offers web search. Their website states that “Kids Click is retired”. If you are seeking filtered internet search that is safe for kids, you can use the search filtering tools above. You will also find helpful articles throughout our website related to online safety, as well as educational resources for teachers and parents.

Regular users are sorry to see Kids Click discontinue their web search services but they are helping to fill in the gap by referring resources that continue to enhance the education of kids. This includes the International Children’s Digital Library. Encouraging kids to explore the world around them is the key to child development. It happens naturally as soon as a child is born when they first begin to soak in the environment around them with eyes wide open.

For trustworthy research tools you can use as an alternative, check out the Safe Wiki for Kids. There you can find a variety of safe Wikipedia articles that are written in easy to understand English. It’s like an online library create just for kids without any harmful content.

Kids Click was established in August 1999. Think of it. That was just a year after Google itself was founded. Since then the internet has grown rapidly and today there are a myriad of online resources for kids. Many of these resources include safe search engines like ours. Safe Search Kids was one of the earlier filtered search tools powered by Google.

Safe Search Internet Filtering vs Parental Control Software

Whether it’s a safe search engine or secure online resources to help kids do research for school, parents and teachers need to be aware that complete internet filtering can only be achieved using parental controls. It’s these types of software programs that block content from all parts of the internet, not just while searching. Content filtering (blocking restrictions) is set by the software owner, such as a parent. It is done according to each child’s age and level of development.

Kids will click when they see an interesting link, there’s no doubt about that. It’s what’s on the other side of that click that is of concern parents. Software can also monitor the keywords kids are searching, as well as their activity on what apps they are using. Social media platforms are also monitored.

Interaction with other human beings through sight, sound and touch creates those first important bonds. This grows into communication beyond the sense into language. This is why access to online educational tools is so important. Research has actually shown that early literacy first begins through play. Before language. For kids to excel in school from an early age, that “play” needs to soon develop into a love for reading.

Instilling a Passion for Reading in Kids

It’s quite natural for kids desire bedtime stories, but there is a definite point in child development when their own passion needs needs to take over. This is necessary in order for them to begin a lifelong habit of reading on their own. It’s easy to say “less screens and more books” but how does a parent begin to instill a passion for reading early on? Here are two infographics on reading that you may find helpful or at least guide you in the right direction.

Exploring basic steps to build a foundation of education through reading…

  1. Of course, we all know we should read to our children from a very early age, but try to work times for reading into other parts of the day other than just a bedtime. This shows children how fun reading and fun it can be anytime they wish, not just in order to delay having go to sleep.
  2. When kids want to watch TV, offer to read them a book instead following by playing a game. This teaches a fun balance or activities.
  3. Bring kids to the library regularly so they can explore and pick books that appear interesting to them. If they don’t like a book, affirm that it’s ok to try and find something they like to read.
  4. Model reading by having kids read their own books along side you when you are reading yours. You may not be an avid reader, but setting times to read together with your child may help them develop a love for reading that you were not taught.
  5. Don’t stop reading to your child after they’ve learned to do it on their own. You can also take turns reading alternate pages of a book with them.

Room for Kids to Explore Safely

There are so many other tips and strategies to raising kids that love to read. It builds a solid foundation for learning. The Internet is one of the greatest resources for kids to access interesting articles or even books, no matter where they are. This is why providing a safe online environment that protects kids while searching the internet is vital, so that kids can freely explore all the positives the web has to offer.

If you knew there was a section of the library that could potentially harm your child, how confident would you be allowing them to freely explore? With solid internet filtering tools, combined with parental controls, you can be that much more comfortable allowing kids to explore and click any link that interests them online.

How Much Screen Time Is Too Much For a Distance Learner?

How much is too much screen time

With a major shift in the world towards distance learning, the discussion of how much time kids can safely spend looking at screens has only become more vital.  Whether it be on smartphone, tablet or laptop, parents have usually been concerned with the time kids spend playing games, interacting on social media or watching TV shows and movies.

Even in a normal world you would also need to add the screen time spent on school computers used for a variety of purposes, such as searching Google and doing research. All of these online activities add up to a staggering number of hours per day looking at screens. And now we must also take into account the time spent doing online school. 85% of parents worry about the amount of time their kids are spending online these days.

The WHO & CDC both recommend no more than 2 hours of screen time for children under 18.  Finding further specifics, The American Academy for Pediatrics urges a 1-hour screen time maximum for children under 6 years old. 

Furthermore, it has been found that children under 2, who regularly watch at least 1 hour of television on a daily basis, may face an increased risk of cognitive, language, and motor delays. Similarly, other studies have claimed too much screen time can cause social and family dysfunction, as well as development delays and depression. 

An interesting consideration about screens, in particular, is their emission of what’s referred to as “blue light”. Blue light is particularly influential because it blocks a hormone that your body makes called melatonin. When you are exposed to blue light waves, especially in the evening, melatonin is not produced, so your body isn’t getting that vital message about slowing down and getting ready for sleep. If your child continues surfing the ‘net on a tablet or smartphone after getting into bed, they could be telling their body to rise and shine, rather than slow down and rest.

Luckily, if you’re concerned about the impact additional screen time may be having on your child, there are steps in preparation for bedtime you can take to help limit your child’s blue light exposure.

With home learning comes more indoor time. However, this makes it especially easy to develop a screen addiction. Did you know excessive screen time can be toxic to our mental health? 56% of teens feel anxious or lonely without their phone.

Yet, distance learning sessions last more than our government recommends we spend on screens altogether – even with compelling data proving its potential to be mentally and physically dangerous. 

Ask yourself: How often are your kids exercising since the quarantine? How social have they been since distance learning began?

The value of education should never be downplayed, but please double check to ensure distance learning isn’t taking a toll on your little ones.

In the meantime, check out the infographic below. It may help you shape a better understanding of how much screen time is too much for your children.

Parental Controls for Google, iPads & Samsung Tablets

Parental Controls for Tablets

If you are planning to buy a tablet for your child this year you may also be exploring parental control options for Google, as well as available safety apps for iPads and Samsung Tablets. There are plenty of buzz words out there related on internet safety, security and parental controls.  It can be overwhelming especially for new parents who are giving a child their very first tablet.

We’ll do our best to break everything down for you. The last thing you need is to duplicate processes while overlooking safety and security essentials in an effort to make sure your new tablet or iPad kid safe.  Let’s begin!

  1. We’ll explore what you need to make your tablet safe.
  2. We’ll let you know what you don’t necessarily need to make it safe.
  3. We’ll talk about software programs or apps are redundant.

Parental Controls On Google

Firstly, if you are seeking a free parental control while searching Google, we have an app for that.  Download our Google SafeSearch App for any tablet and instruct your kids to only use it to search Google.  It provides the same strict filtering results as featured on the top of our website, but provided within the confines of an app.  You may want to remove/delete all other search apps such as Safari for iPad and Chrome so they are not accessible for use.

Google also offers Family Link.  It provides free tools to guide kids to good content, teach and set digital ground rules, monitor screen time and track location.

Parental Control Software and Parental Control Apps often refer to programs that block access to the entire web.  Our search app and Google’s Family Link do not block or monitor internet access. Google SafeSearch only filters the web while searching.  Our app and Family Link are free tools you can use to provide a certain level of parental control.

Greater restrictions are needed through a parental control app or software for those who want to stop older kids from taking steps to download harmful content. This may include re-downloading other search apps that you removed from the tablet.  Explore the options available within our recommended Parental Control App for complete blocking and monitoring.

Social Media Safety

Even if you have Google search covered, kids will also have access to outside content via their social media platforms.  Every parent should have an open and honest conversation about which social media websites are allowed in your home.  You can implement agreed upon guidelines as well, but this is where complete parental control apps can allow parents to see everything that is happening on any device the software is installed.

Parental control with a paid subscription model will have a parent dashboard to view app downloads on all devices.  The dashboard will also allow you to limit screen time and block specific hours when users are allowed online, such as late in the evening or when you are not home.  And of course, all bad sites can be blocked not matter what method us used to find them, even if accidentally.

KTablets with Parental Controlids Tablets with Parental Control

If you have younger kids and not looking for a fully functional device like iPad or a Samsung tablet, there are fun activity tablets that already come with their own parental controls built in.  These are very basic user-friendly tablets for kids that provide a safe environment for game downloads and internet search.  Explore these tablets here.

Anti-Virus for Tablets

While parental control is all about protecting kids from accessing inappropriate websites, it does not block viruses.   If you are getting a tablet for younger kids that are going to be strictly using Google safe search, then the risk for infection from computer viruses is lower.  Generally, tablets are safer than PC computers but virus infection can still happen.

iPads are more secure because Apple’s operating system is more closed.  Samsung tablets are running on an Android platform, which is more open, and therefore more susceptible.  Just be aware that parental control or any other app designed to deliver safe search does not protect against viruses or malware.

Other than visiting infected website, email is the most common way a computer will get infected from a virus.   If your child is not running email, then the risk of infect is reduced even more.  If they are using a filtering search engine like ours, they are also less likely to end up on an infected website.  To clarify, parental control software does not stop virus infections.

  • Install anti-virus software for email and consider anti malware software to safety against infected websites.

Online Gaming Security
