The Ultimate Guide To Parental Control

It’s probably fairly clear that I’m not a big fan of parental control software or tools. They don’t work well in many cases, and I think many parents use them as a crutch to avoid dealing head on with the underlying issue of lack of respect from the kids. That said, if you are interested in your options for tools to help control access to electronic media, this guide from The Progress & Freedom Foundation covers just about every commercial product or rating service that is available. It also explains that built in tools in the Xbox, Playstation, etc. that your kids may have forgot to tell you about.
