I don't know about the technicalities of parental control settings, but for sure your ISP and the sites you visit keep logs of what their customers/visitors do.

I don't know your specific situation ( nor do I need to know ) but in my view, always be open and honest and then there is no need to be suspicious if someone is looking over your shoulder.

My 2 cents.

Cheers ... McBie

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
