If you want your children to experience the world of Minecraft in a safe environment where you control whom they interact with but you don't know where to start, the safest and securest environment is to build your own server.

DURING THE 1970's late night TV News Buffalo public service announcement asked the question, "Do you know where your children are?" The somber question was usually asked around 11:00PM every night as a reminder to parents that it was curfew time. You can ask the same question today when you allow your children to participate in online gaming over the internet, "Do you know where your children are?" The difference today is that your children are freely roaming the information highway's virtual streets right in your own home. You give your children a computer with internet access they can logon to a public server and interact with complete strangers anywhere around the world.

When you allow your children to play unsupervised on public servers you don't know with whom they are interacting with. By creating your own server you can control their online gaming environment.
