I must say I agree with jmacavali. The best parental control is to play with trust; if they do stuff they ain't ment'ta don't let them use the computer; and if they use it properly, they can continue use. Basic rules of respect really.
I have to disagree-- not all kids are going to become computer-savvy users. Some just want to watch you-tube and do basic searches for homework purposes. Those same kids are going to randomly click on things, either out of boredom or something unexpected happening.
This is why I have parental controls in place, kids in non-administrator accounts, and content-filtering. No matter the trustworthiness, things are going to happen, and I would rather spend my time helping the kids get a game or two installed, than having to remove four and a half tons of malware because what they thought was a game or a mod really wasn't.
