Integrated Parental Control



  • Hi! nothing more to say...
    I know there are many extensions, but I'd like to have this function fully integrated.

    That's it

    Have a nice day

    @emiliano-paladini I am in favour of controlling parents to stop them messing up their kids. (~_~)

    True.
    There are a lot of parental control extensions on store but... it's never good idea to lock resources on internet.
    There's an high risk to obtain the opposite behaviour.
    If you lock something (censorship) people will search it more often with better and alternative ways to avoid the parental control and often without knowledge on the matter. If you find something strange you should discuss about it with your kids.
    I've nothing against the request, it's legit after all, but it's not good doing that.



  • I don't think it is useful to implement this function in a browser. Every computer has various ways to connect to the internet or a LAN (browsers, chat-clients, rss-reader, etc.).

    As father, I agree with you. But you know that many parents don't follow their kids as they should.
    The question is: can we do something for the kids with distracted parents?

    I'm against the censorship and I'll always be. But, in my opinion, parental control is quite different, it's protection behaviour.

    I totally agree with you.

    Yes, you're right, but in my opinion, the browser is the first interface the kids discover and, maybe, the most dangerous.

    We have even television with integrated parental control, why browser not?

    Thank you all, for sharing with me your opinions



  • @emiliano-paladini You should go with an extension, then.
    Parental control work almost as the adlblocker.
    A list made from devs/users which block specific contents.
    It's the main reason is not simple to integrate in a browser, it'd slowdown the browser development.
    Just choose an extension which allows what type of sites you should lock without locking everything which is not "politically correct".
    Remember kids will know you locked something at the first research and they'll use another machine for the "mission" if they want =)
    I agree that internet was, is - and will be an "horrible place" but it is almost everywhere, so locking at home is "almost useless".
    Just... don't abuse locking (never had parental lock on tv) ;)
    Silly example: a total security could block a lot of wikipedia/medical pages if they show how we are anatomically made =)
    CIAO!



  • @emiliano-paladini Parental controls on TVs are known to be highly ineffective. More often than not they lock out the parents, instead of their more tech-savvy kids. For effective censorship send your kids to China -- they have the know how, ways and means.

    Yes. Educate the parents. Tell them about the importance of competent kids. Which is easier done than said, as most kids are eager to learn about the internet. Kids want to learn, at least as long as the have an interest in the topic.

    I'm against the censorship and I'll always be. But, in my opinion, parental control is quite different, it's protection behaviour.

    No. You know the saying about the fisher? Give a man a fish and feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime.

    In my opinion it's much more important to teach kids how to make do on the internet. And teach them how to interpret the things they see and read.

    And kids are much more resilient towards unexpected and - in the opinion of the parents - dangerous content. Tell your kids about sex and why the way people doing it on the internet isn't real. Tell them about violence and how it's not good, and perhaps why many people on the internet find it so appealing.

    Yes, you're right, but in my opinion, the browser is the first interface the kids discover and, maybe, the most dangerous.

    How is this dangerous?

    If they know about dangers, they can be aware and respectful towards it - not post personal images, not give personal details...

    We have even television with integrated parental control, why browser not?

    Because browsers are made by people who usually understand more about the internet that people who build TVs. And as a parent, I'd like to decide myself if my kids can watch a movie or a documentary, totally ignoring what some society-elected committee sees fit to suggest.

    Thank you all, for sharing with me your opinions

    Thanks for listening ;) and kudos for at least showing you care about your children. I'd just like if you did it in another way ;)



  • Ok guys, I give up!
    Your reasoning are better than mine. I'm just a scared new father that would protect their children from anything.
    I'm getting old... (romantic piano melody in background) :-)

    PS This chat was precious for me. Now I can see in different way this matter. And no, I won't send my children to China!

    Have a nice day guys!



  • I do not see it necessary, since any search engine has search filters to block certain pages not suitable for children
