Internet predators, cyberbullies, websites and social networks that may be inappropriate for children — it's understandable why parents fret about their kids' activities in cyberspace. Especially because there's a wide perception that the youngsters understand technology better than Mom and Dad.

Sorry, but it's bull****. Symantec has always been a piece of crap. It's anti-virus uses up way to many resources and it's overall ****. Avast is a lot better and doesn't use up a lot of resources.

Now, about 'spying' on your childs computer use. I can see that if they're like 3-4, but if you do this when their teenagers then you should be shot. They are old enough to know whats right/wrong and you shouldn't be invading their privacy like that. I knew if my parents spied on me as a kid I would of shot them. Invasion of privacy.
