    There are a lot of free applications out there to monitor your kids' activity. And there are some you will pay for. Or you could simply WATCH them. Limit their time online. Limit the numbers of websites they can visit. Use parental controls within each program. Check their browser history. Check your PHONE bill--to see if they have ordered, hooked up to some place they should not have been to, or even accidentally clicked on something. 

    Have a LONG talk with them about what they are allowed and not allowed to do on line. Forbid them from using ANY personal information on social media sites, or any other sites--and protect your own info by locking it up so they can't access it.

    You can look at their search history to see what sites they have visited. You can also look at "recent" to see what they have been opening in texts or mages. You can do a search yourself by typing in various letters of the alphabet to see what pops up because even if the delete their search history things still seem to pop up from previous searches. you can also open a tab in a browser to see if there are websites shown in whatever appears when you hit tab. You can see what browser they are suing in Control Panel "Internet Options. This is where you can block websites.

    You shouldn't. Give them some.privacy, if you don't they will find out that you're monitoring then and they will find a way around it. It just makes them more sneaky and less trusting

    Mac: Parental controls under Preferences.

    Windows: User account with restrictions (no admin authority)

    Check the browser history when you can. Or just let them be, they only thing you should be worried about is if they are looking at gruesome murder type stuff or talking to strangers, the rest they need to explore on their own.

    Place the computer in a common area where you can see what is being done. Limit the amount of time on the computer. There are also NUMEROUS software packages that you can buy. Windows actually comes with many safety settings and features a parent can use to limit usage.
