No Internet access for kids seems to be the easiest solution, and if parents came to me with such nannying requests, I would immediately refuse to help on the grounds that I would not want the blame should something happen.
There is no panacea that will reduce such paranoia. It's up to them to trust their children and/or 'parent' them. If they feel they have to watch their kids Internet activities in secret, that's their choice, but it's a very controlling one.
Are we talking illegal sites, or just ones that any average parent would worry about? Will it be what political or social views they might want to explore? Where does the nannying stop, and when does it stop being protective and start being restrictive?
No I don't have kids. No I don't want kids. They're far too much hassle.
