  1. Thanks Lori for the list. Do you know how to block specific websites in Safari? I have one website I want to block because the babysitter seems to spend too much time on this website when she should be spending time with Jr.

    I encourage her to use the internet with Jr. to play games and I know he loves to look at street signs so I don’t want to prevent her from using it. I also don’t want to be confrontational with her about the website I want blocked as I don’t want her to think I’ve been “Spying” on her.

  2. I know that in tiger you can allow only certain sites, but I am pretty sure you can’t block sites.

    Leopard has more advanced parental controls that allow you to allow and/or block specific sites.

    I have never tried either of these so am not sure what happens if someone goes to a site that is not allowed. Let me know what happens if you try it. I am curious.
