computer bugs

Pic has been using the computer since she was four. It started very slowly. Just some PBS Kids at first. She still mainly uses the computer for that. She also was interested in Sprout for a very small period of time. Right now, she likes to switch between PBS Kids and an online dress up games site. I don't worry about the PBS Kids site, but the other has ads and plenty of available links. So, I explained to Pic that we only click on certain parts of the screen and I explained why. (I question just about everything, and I don't like arbitrary or unexplained rules.)

When I asked Pic the other day to explain to me why we don't click on the links or ads, she told me, "Because we don't want the computer to get influenza."

Indeed, we don't.
