Yesterday was the 1st of June, day that is internationally recognized as Children’s Day. On such a joyous occasion I ran a Children’s Day Special and posted only children-related news. One of the news focused on security, mainly on security software solutions that could help parents protect their children from cyberbullying, offensive content and other security threats.

In that article I mentioned AVG Family Safety, the security tool that parents can use to block, monitor and control content from over 60 million websites and more than 80 different social networks. Thanks to the functionality AVG Family Safety, parents can rest assured that their children are surfing the web safely and securely.

It’s like having a virtual guardian that can keep threats away from your children. The children get to surf and enjoy the web, while the guardian keeps the dangers at bay. The nice thing is that AVG Family Safety can be customized so that it can protect children of different ages. AVG Family Safety’s adaptable profiles can be adjusted to provide different levels of protection to children of different ages; or they can be adjusted as a single child grows up.

The news is that you can get AVG Family Safety for free if you show your support to the American Red Cross and make a very small donation. AVG Technologies announced that if you make a $0.99 donation to the American Red Cross family relief efforts in Joplin, Mo, you can get AVG Family Safety for free.

AVG Technologies explained that it is practically giving AVG Family Safety for free due to the info the “Digital Diaries” study brought to light. The year-long study conducted by AVG Technologies, showed that:
  • 51% of children age 6 to 9 use some kind of children’s social network and 47% communicate among themselves on the internet.
  • 14% of children use Facebook even though they are underage and should not be using the social networking site.
  • About 1 in 5 children use email. aBout on in six 6 to 9-yeard-olds one in five 8- to 9-year-olds have experienced objectionable or aggressive behavior online.
  • On average American children spend 4 hours online
  • 58% of parents said they do not understand their children’s online social networks.
  • 56% of parents said their family computer has parental controls or safety programs in place.
