As long as the minor is living in the parents house it is the parents decision to monitor or not monitor the computer usage. Can a parent be over controlling concerning where the minor goes on the internet and how the child behaves while using the computer and the net? Absolutely!
I agree with Midasgirl in that my children are free to monitor my computer usage if there comes a time when I am living in their house and using their computer.
Thanks Gene, I'm glad there are still a few of us left who love our kids immensely and still have the balls to stand up to them.
