Some sites for the kids

Feb. 1, 1999
The Internet can be a great place for children to explore. There is a wealth of knowledge out there. You do need to be very careful when your kids are "surfing the net." Many sites in cyberspace are not suitable for young eyes. I list below a number of fun and interesting places for children to visit. They are great starting points for you and your children or grandchildren. Take the trip with them ... you will both be entertained and enlightened.
