Netflix parental controls

Anyone else attempted to use these? Am I going something fundamentally wrong (more than possible!)?

Let's start with a simple one...

Allow a 15 year old to watch 15s but not 18s. Any ideas?

Or, how to stop someone on one profile switching to another profile (without content restrictions)?

It’s normally the age when you discover how good movies truly are.

Imagine being 18 before you see you first see a woman with 3 tits, for example. Cruelty!!

A 15 year old is surely accessing stuff well beyond what would be in a 18 film on the internet.

This 18 year old limit for movies and such is a joke now,how could you possibly control that now with the internet..."Anything" that is on netflix now the kids have seen ten times worse already most probably from 8 upwards.

Gone are the days of finding mags or a video cassette hidden in dads wardrobe or bottom draw so the kids would not find them

The Options are:

Child - Toddlers Only or Older children plus younger.
Adult - Teens or Full Maturity

What they mean:
Little Kids
U, Safe for Kids

Older Kids
PG, All

Teens
12, Guidance, Teen

Mature
15, 18, Mature, Adult


You access it all in profiles.

Looks like there is no option for 15 but not 18 to me.

I remember my Dad bought my brother and I GTA Vice City when I was only 11 and my brother was 14, we loved him for it! (and I didn't even end up in prison for stealing cars/shooting people in the street/running a prostitution ring)

I never bothered, being a rather slack parent. At least they were able to give me tips for things to watch, albeit highly inappropriate for their ages.

I'm not at all convinced this has to be the case.

My kids (my eldest is 9) have no access to youtube etc. Their media intake at home is totally within my control and I feel I'd be letting them down to see certain things to young.

However, I know very well that other kids in his class have total youtube etc acces and have done for years.

So when the latest horror comes out, his peer group play games like "Slenderman" - but my son, thankfully, doesn't really know what its all about. Doesn't stop him playing though.

I dunno. Maybe I'm over harsh but I can't imagine seeing that crap from such a young age is helpful.


Mind you, I imagine by the time he's 15 I'll allow him to watch 18s - but with a pin set so he has to check with his parents first.

I think you can restrict your child’s access to age appropriate stuff whilst you have control of the tech.

So, whilst our child was primary age, we had the family laptop in a downstairs room, no TV in bedroom and no phone (in my opinion most juniors do not need a phone). Cable TV etc is password protected.

Once he went to senior school, then he received a iphone. But he had to charge it downstairs overnight and we reserved the right to check viewing history, initially at least.

With regard to age appropriate films, I’ve found the parental guidance information on IMDB to be useful. We allowed some 15 rated films from about 13 onwards, and some 18 films from about 15/16. Same for pc games.

You know your own child and what might, or might not, scare or upset them. I think if you ban everything with no flexibility, it just becomes more likely teenagers will find another way to watch it.

Thanks all, I'm well aware of the difficulties of trying to control all the tech he has access to.

There are certain things I'd probably be ok with him watching but ideally would want to limit that. He's actually only 14, turns 15 in a few months. In a years time when he's approaching 16 I doubt it'll be an issue

I was doing that when I was 10, when the internet was smaller and less accessible. Me and my pals huddled around a laptop watching some fella getting his cock bitten by a king cobra on jackass

Give him Netflix access for full maturity, but set it with a PIN on all mature material on the account, so that he has to run anything over the Teens rating by you before he can watch.
