Need some safe search options for your kids? I am always a little fearful of what will come up when I Google something. For that reason, I often have kids turn away or I freeze the board. Another option is to use it as a learning experience, showing kids what to click on and what not to click on when online. A great option to use for when kids are in the classroom or at home, are safe search engines just for kids!
Google Safe Search
This is my go-to search for kids. It is like searching Google, but very filtered. If you scroll down, there is even a safe image search available. If kids type in some words (like "sex", "naked", etc), it will put a stop sign up and not let them continue.
Searches emphasize kid-friendly websites. Also uses Google SafeSearch technology. Again, if you search certain terms, it will put up a note saying "Oops!"
This search only returns Google "strict" search results. Another great option for searching. It reminds me a lot of my first choice at the top.
You can also go through and set your search to SafeSearch. Do this by clicking on Settings on the bottom right (that's where mine was). Then it gives search options. You can checkmark the SafeSearch box. You can even lock it so no one can turn off the option except for the people with the password.
