The Hector Safety Button
The Hector Safety Button: "This Hector Safety Button has been created by the NetSafe� Programme of New Zealand to help keep children safe online. The function of this button is to give a child the ability to quickly cover the screen of the computer with a screensaver of Hector Protector when they encounter material that frightens or upsets them. With a click of the button, the problem is covered over by Hector until a trusted adult can come and deal with the situation. Hector also gives children very positive feedback for using the button and for talking with an adult about the problem."
