So no internet-capable mobile phones for their kids, no sleepovers, not even visits to friends' houses, no looking at friends' mobiles.

At home, of course it's easy, as we all know that no-one under the age of 18 has any possible chance of working out how to circumnavigate parental control software.

Another thought, how do parents or a single parent supervise the internet access of multiple children in different rooms?


In fairness to the anon, it's not my problem, your problem or society's problem. It's the parents' and or guardians' problem. Newsagents pop the strong stuff on the top shelf, landlords (should) check for ID. Society takes steps to keep themelves right and legal, but it's not their fault if kids are given all the access to these things.

Now if their kids are unsupervised whilst using the internet ,and access this site and other content deemed suitable for adults, then that is not the fault of their Isp, or the government ,or the sites owner, but only their own fault

1, I think internet capable phones for their kids to use is a bad plan for those who are so insistent on their cherubs not being able to access over 18 's content, by providing such a gadget then they have to accept that kids will always do this sort of thing, it's for most part of growing up, but too much nannying ain't in the long tern beneficial to any child young adult, life can be hard, they should be prepared for what it may throw at them
There is no one forcing the parents to buy such gadgets or for their offspring to use such, they are a luxury & not a right, plus the parents would save a fortune
2, more than one pc/laptop ? simple limit the number to 1 so you can supervise them if you are so paranoid that they will be looking at porn or accessing this sort of site once you back is turned
The re is some similarities to this argument and another quest of mumsnet, that was to get retail stores to stop selling clothing that was described as inappropriate by them for young kids,( pre teen girls clothing ) this was featured on tv too, sexualisation of children

But yet again the shopkeeper is not forcing them to buy such items. so if they don't like them the the answer is simple don't buy them, and what happened to telling the child No you are not having that ect? or commonsense ,?Because if no body bought the stuff i very much doubt it would exist in those clothing shops, this country is barking ....
