I strongly disagree with that statement. It will only reinforce his deceitful/bad behaviour and not instill good values that he will require in later life. If he wants his own computer, then he has to save up for it and pay for it himself.

Entirely possible. If he was capable of bypassing the existing security, then he was also capable of disabling whatever AV was installed.

Which is why I said this:

I suggest a minimum of 48hrs, increasing by 24hrs each time he circumvents the security. If he continues to circumvent the security, then you need to be looking at a longer period of access denial, such as a week or even a month. He needs to learn that access to your computer is a privilege and not a right, and, as it is your computer, you have the last word on what can and cannot be done on it.

I agree with Dwarf.

If it was a child of mine, he or she would learn right from wrong and I wouldn't worry how long they were grounded.

I know I'm preaching, but you can't have rights without responsibilities, and the only place a child is going to learn right from wrong is from his parents.

Ask any police officer and they will tell you that child delinquency stems from bad parenting.

Rant over.

I don't class that as a Rant, rather more common sense and a means to instill good moral values in our offspring, something which is all too sadly lacking in today's society.

My eldest daughter is now 43 and even now she still reminds me of the time she was taught how to close a door without slamming it.

It took 32 consecutive attempts before she realised I wasn't going to give up - I'd have carried on all night if necessary.

That's how I was raised and that's how I raised my kids to.

There can't be a finer thing than the gift of a new life and we as parents should treasure that gift even though the path to adulthood is very hard at times.

Personally I would see if his little 'hacking' ability is a sign of an interest in computers and tech. If it is I would find a healthy outlet for that, and encourage that.
Steadily trying to block him like this is just going to be seen as a challenge, and if he's intelligent and has a interest in the subject, he will always find a way around it.

I would agree with the first part of your statement. But would you agree that in addition to that our children should also be taught personal responsibility for their actions ?

I agree. An interest in computing, fashion, or whatever field s/he chooses needs to be encouraged, whilst at the same time making the point that they are responsible for their actions.
