Dear Amy: How can I find a search engine that shows only safe Web sites? — Abdallah, Saudi Arabia

Dear Abdallah: Using a search engine that is specifically designed for kids is a good way to ensure inappropriate sites will not appear when searching for Web sites. Two of my favorite search engines for kids are Yahooligans at http://kids.yahoo.com and Ask Jeeves Kids at www.askkids.com. These search engines will help you to find sites that pertain to your search without having to worry about viewing inappropriate content.
