    While that part about punishing the students for fighting back is true, you also have a long record of denigrating kids who don't "man up."

    I don't think it is possible, necessary or beneficial to control what a teenager views online. However, parents should teach their kids media literacy and skepticism so that they don't take everything they see and hear as necessarily true, and know how to evaluate the quality of information. Schools should teach that also, since many parents are unwilling and/or unable to teach that.

    just like 'don't put your hand on a hot stove' proper firearms handling procedures how to behave towards the opposite sex, the internet is an easy thing to deal with. Raise yer kid properly, if some kid whacks themselves it's not the 'internets' fault.

    Not many parents have the luxury of being able to monitor their kids 24/7. If they did the kid would probably go elsewhere to use a computer without being controlled, if he/she was healthy.

    So, at school, I get the sense that they're unmonitored - because, though they're at school, the schools decided they don't care that much and brush off all responsibility.
    As a kid, if someone ever told me I couldn't look at something, the first thing I would do is try to look at it without getting caught. I would still do it if it happened. I might let someone control my activities, but never my mind or access to information.

    If a kid knows what is what you don't have to hover over his shoulder

    We didn't have any of that technology when I was a kid either, but that never stopped some of us from obtaining large quantities of porn or dope. Parents can not control teenagers without locking them up day and night, they can only influence them.
