They will surf the internet to disable it.

 

BEst solution is,  on your router only allow the sites they can access.

 

my kids dont have internet access on theirs yet. when they are 12 they can have access and we will be enabling parental controls on the Router from our ISP.

Hi, sunshine.  I purchased laptops for all three of my kids for Christmas last year. The Internet can be a dangerous place and so I installed a parental control keylogger on their computers to monitor their online activity. It is common for parents to use monitoring software to protect kids, though some people may not understand this. This keylogger I used is safe and undetectable, you can have a try. By the way, if you are afraid of violating their privacy, the web filter is a nice choice.

Teach your kids to make the right choices then trust them to make responsible decisions. This is not china, censoring the world they live in will only lead to bigger problems down the road.

Re: Blackberry playbook parental controls or keylogger software?

 Ah, forgive me but I think that keylogging is not the best way to control this. The internet is like life - there is good and bad. The internet can also help their studies.

 

But with a child of that age, the parent may need to control what is seen. If I was young and my parents used keylogging software like mac keylogger or mac spy to "spy" on me, I would not be happy. The child may lose trust in you.

Happy every day

If you have the browser open, swipe down from the top and you will notice a small clock icon next to the yellow star. Tap this and it will list all the sites that were visited today. Check them and then decide if it is time to talk to your kids.

Looking at history is useless - I clear mine down every day. So will the kids. Any device that shows you what they have already seen is too late and the first time you confront them the trust is lost.

 Any app you install can be uninstalled and reinstalled by them at will as there is no admin account to create a non admin account to run the controls like on a pc or mac. None of the three suggestions above runs on playbook, one is for phones the other two are for pcs.

 

Playbook is a fully open business tool so you are just going to have to talk to them about bad websites the same way you tell them not to take candy from men in cars.

Being too strict to them makes them unhappy, but leaving them alone is also not a good idea. Parental control software is necessary.
