The two biggest concerns for parents with kids and teens online are:
1 Inappropriate content.
2 Amount of time spent on-line.
Parents are reluctant to admit or imagine that they might lose control.
They also micro-manage and hover when children are younger.
Traditionally, software options must be downloaded and maintained and are hard to configure.
Also, software options only cover a single device and are security focused.
