Let us suppose you installed the Spy Cam and unfortunately, you found what your child is doing on PC which he should not do.
What can you do next? If you scorn him, scold him, beat him, he will become more disrespectful to you. He will come to know that he is being spied. Whats more, you will develop loads of tension on yourself.
What more can we do after the spy cam has done its work?
The young guy will not do in ways from where you will come to know but that does not mean that he has stopped doing.
The sentence - "We cannot take chances" is actually correct, but let me tell you that installing a spy cam is not the correct way.
I will suggest you to have open talks with this guy about things you feel should not be done - not by scolding or by anger but by talking about things openly that one person does in hiding or secrecy which he does not want to reveal.
So once things are all open, I bet this young guy will not do things you do not want to do on PC and nor would you have any need of "Taking chances" in front of the PC.
Moreover, you should also understand that IT IS THIS AGE of your young guy which demands to "Know" such things when there are new developments going inside and if he cannot find information in good ways, then he can turn into bad ways.
You may feel how can we talk about such subjects openly? You may feel frightened or tensed to talk with your young guy about subjects like this but even when you are not talking about these subjects, your young guy is having access to them - but in ways we may not desire!
So when information goes from the good way, then there are no needs of going through the PC and there will be never a need of the Spy Cams.
Have open talks very often, be free in talking, open talks with you and him or with both parents and him and without any shyness let off what you think, what he thinks what you all want him to know and cover up the communication gap and release off the tensions building in your mind.
