Automatic update of squid 'whitelist'

Hi guys,

i have recently configured squid with dansguardian. Squid was running on a whitelist mode, meaning i deny every single traffic, and allow traffic that matches with what i allow only.

this however, introduced a problem where i have to manually update the list of sites allowed for kids, which is not efficient. is there any websites where i can use' wget' to download recommended websites for kids, and plug it into the list of allowed websites.

or I'm thinking that maybe if there's some way to write a script where it will automatically add the search results to the list, from reliable search engines like

Keep in mind I am actually designing a safe web surfing for kids...

Your feedback will be appreciated.
