A Father Provides Security

Submitted by Stephen Winters

I just received another lesson on the role of a father. A father should be very similar to a good Internet Security System for computers.

Since I am setting up a new computer, I'm also re-evaluating our Internet Security Software for the computer. Besides all the security features, a good security software should protect your computer fully, but not bog it down.

This morning I did some research at these websites:

A good Internet Security Software should be:

  • Easy to use
  • Not overpowering
  • not in the way
  • Provide real-time protection and blocking
  • Detect Adware, spyware, Keyloggers, Trojans, Viruses
  • Monitoring all Internet traffic

The security software should also do its job almost invisibly, except when necessary.

After I took a break from reading the reviews and the comparisons I realized that being a father is much like the security software. A father is to supply security and protection to the family without getting in everyone's face and making them all prisoners. A father should protect the family almost invisibly while bringing warmth and compassion.

A good father should  be:

  • Knowledgeable of the dangers that are lurking in the world.
    • Observant and aware of what the children are doing.
    • Only step when needed or to protect from danger
    • a protector.....
