Is It a Good Idea to Block Websites As Parental Control?
Back To Top
In my opinion, parenting has become the toughest job nowadays especially if you are a single or even parent of a teen. Whenever I try to argue with my 13 years son about the use of smartphones, I always found him little aggressive. As I can't have an eye on his activities that's why I decided to block some websites from his devices tablets and smartphones etc. Do you think it is a good idea? As a parent do you also willing to take some precautions about to censor the activities of your kids or teens on smart devices?
Secondly, I am not sure where I will that list of sites that I need to block at my son's phone and I just found these sources in this regard.https://www.familyorbit.com/blog/list-of-inappropriate-websites-to-block/https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/sites-parents-add-block-list/
However, when I talked with my friends, they raised a point that what I will do in case, kids find alternates of them? That was a real concern of every teen's parent. I would like you guys to discuss it in a general way instead of only focusing my son because it is a real threat for every parent nowadays and yes, we can't say no about the use of smart devices because his consequences would also be negative. In addition, I also found some parental control routers here https://thewiredshopper.com/best-parental-control-devices-routers-to-buy/
in my Google search. Do you think such devices will help the parents? I never tried and have no knowledge about them so I want to get more information about their pros and cons and uses.
As it is about our future (kids are our future) so I expect this topic would be discussed in a very serious manner here with feasible and worth reading solutions.
Waiting for your responses.
