Our kids have been using YouTube since they were using two. My six year old daughter can operate an iPhone better than I can. So, when we got to the age where they are starting to use those connected devices independent of us if opened some deep philosophical questions... - what sites should we potentially restrict the to see / not see. - How do we manage the fact that our two kids are at different stages in terms of what sites they use. - How do we ensure that they can freely use the internet for school research, etc - without feeling like we're policing them. - How do we give them access to social networks to chat with gramma, but not so they get approached by strangers / bullies.
The Skydog router amazingly solves all of the above, and does it in a super simple way.
We can set different content filtering policies for each child, and at different hours during each day. That way, my younger daughter can only go to pure children's educational sites and some supervised YouTube, whereas my older son can use Wikipedia and some image libraries. Neither of them can ever go to porn, gambling or seedy websites.
The entire network took me less than half an hour to configure, and I'm pretty sure that's I'll need to do until their surfing habits need to change.
I realize that It sounds like I work for them but full disclosure - I'm just a customer who bought one. I backed them on kickstarter and I'm so impressed with how the final product has turned out. Really looking forward to checking in on the network over the next couple of weeks on the included mobile web app to see how my configuration holds up.
Definitely think that any household with 1 (or especially more) kid should have one of these.
