Many of today's parents leave the basic behaviour teaching tasks to schools. And today's schools are afraid of kids and parents. (Teachers can't even touch students.)
So, parental control (or spying rather) is the solution for today's parents.
Which is unfortunate. So much as changed since I was a kid. And I'm only turning 20 (On April 18th). When I was a kid my parents taught me right from wrong. I also didn't have all the technological gadgets. I was excited when I got a VCR for the first time. And my computer that I got for the first time was very old and not connected to the internet. I used it only to play Baldur's Gate (1 and 2. Original released in 1998 that I still play today!) and some education games. I was a big reader and artistic child. I liked going outdoors too.
