Parental controls to help subscribers' families protect their children's online lives

Today, children have never known a time when they haven’t been connected to the internet. In fact, 90 percent of children have access to the internet in some manner and almost half of teens report being online constantly. Further, more than a third of children report having experienced cyberbullying, yet only 10 percent disclose the incident to their parent or guardian. There is something that can be done about this.
