Parental controls are often used in place of a dialogue with child about cyber risks: do you agree?


Parental control softwares are used in order to prevent a child from accidentally access content they may harm him. However some parents use them completely, without having discussions with their child about risks they can encounter on internet. Do you agree parental control softwares are sometimes seen not as a protection from accidental clicks, but as a "very comfortable" way of solving child's problems without spending time by talking to him? What are your opinions about parental controls?

    In fact, in this case, parental controls are used for their real scope: protecting children from accidental downloads or content loading. And that's good.
