If you've got an Internet connection in the home plus kids who know how to switch the PC on, it's more than likely they are more cluey about the Net than you could ever had imagined. They may have even beaten you to creating their own Web site.
So why not foster this interest? It can only be beneficial in later years when in the workplace. Webmonkey provides excellent tutorials in Web development for adults, and does the same for kids at this site (http://www.hotwired.com/webmonkey/kids).
Webmonkey for Kids offers simple English explanation of what the Internet is, how it works, and how to build Web sites. Lessons include Web design, HTML, how to use images, adding guestbooks and counters, and getting your pages onto the Net. A "Tools" section points kids in the right direction for finding relevant software, Web sites and other tools.
Parents and teachers are not left out of the loop, a section specifically for adults explains how to best utilise the tutorials and ensure a safe and healthy Internet experience for kids.
