Security Awareness Training for Parents

One of the things I would like to do is better understand the resources parents have to help protect their children, specifically tools for monitoring kids activities. One of the things I've been dissapointed in is the poor selection of tools, especially reporting. What would be great is to get an email once a week reporting in detail what each child's activity was on their computer. I've been testing Norton Online Family for the past couple of weeks, and I'm pretty dissapointed. It has alot of features, but the reporting is very weak. The weekly email is nothing more then a detail of what features are enabled. Also, it seems to be missing alot of the end user's activity, such as not reporting all websites visisted. I'm about to give NetNanny a run, but I was wondering if anyone else had any suggestions, especially for strong monitoring and reporting.

Give SAFE EYES a drive. Not perfect, but better than most. McAfee just bought them out. For free internet filtering software try K9.
