America’s postal employees are still pressing Congress to
Save America’s Postal Service.
We have a lot more work to do.
On Tuesday afternoon, September 27, thousands of members of the four employee unions of the United States Postal Service—
• American Postal Workers Union
• National Association of Letter Carriers
• National Postal Mail Handlers Union
• National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association
—joined forces with our families, friends and members of our communities to send a message to the nation and its Congress.
Also joining us was the the National Association of Postal Supervisors (NAPS). Click here to read their entire statement.
Our purpose during these informational rallies was to visit the home office of each member of the House of Representatives, to thank those members who have signed on as co-sponsors of H.R. 1351, a bill that addresses the financial crisis facing the Postal Service, and to encourage those who have not signed as co-sponsors of H.R. 1351 to do so.
The parental control software is a handy tool to help parents guide their children. These programs or online services can filter web or gaming content that are inappropriate for young children or provide a monitoring system to enable parents to watch their kids. There are a lot of these programs out on the market and you need just the right parental control software. Here are some features that you should look for to help you choose the best control software for your family.
Before we proceed to the features, it is best to discuss the parental control software with your children before implementing them. Trust and clear communication is as important as guiding your children’s media preferences.
First, the program should have settings depending on your child’s age. Children should be allowed to more websites as they mature. As such, the software should be able to provide more leeway to say, a 13-year old, compared to 7 year old kids.
Aside from websites, some programs also have features that block certain applications from running whenever the child access the computer or console game. This is handy if you own gaming systems that have games that are more appropriate for older audiences.
You should also get one that enables you to remotely access your child’s computer. The software would alert you whenever your child accesses a forbidden site or if someone is attempting to change its settings in your child’s computer.
It also should have a scheduling feature to limit your child’s web access and help them focus on their tasks at home or at school.
The program should also have a logging feature that shows you the websites that your child has been visiting. Parents do have busy lives so logs are a handy way of reviewing their children’s web access history.
Price is also a clear concern when it comes to these programs and preferences vary. Usually both free and commercial programs can be useful for protecting your child’s interests. Free software is beneficial for someone who is in a tight budget. Commercial programs on the other hand benefit from a stronger customer service system that can quickly assist you with any concerns.
