Dear Amy: Do you think the Internet is dangerous?--Savanna, Winter Haven, Fla. Dear Savanna: It's true, the Internet definitely has some places that are too adult for kids to visit. Most parents want their kids to experience the freedom of searching the Web, but they are afraid of what they might come across. The latest things are the new kids' browsers SurfMonkey at www.surfmonkey.com and KidDesk at www.riverdeep.net/edmark. These browsers include more controls for parents. SurfMonkey lets kids steer a virtual spaceship to approved Web sites, and KidDesk allows your parents ultimate control by first approving what gets downloaded. (These sites are no longer available.)
