“…The great thing is that this isn’t one of these ‘stealth’ big-brother programs where the parents are eavesdropping on their kids surreptitiously; the real value here is that there is a communication built between the parent and the child.” -- Ed Baig, USA Today

“Kids click around the Web at warp speed… Parents can't find meaning in the crush of data that monitoring software provides: too many Web sites and not enough time to figure out if the sites are appropriate. Norton Online Family streamlines the data from all your computers, so even non-techie parents can figure out if their kids are getting in trouble online.” -- Becky Worley, Good Morning America
