It sounds a bit tame really:

So, my son is having difficulty concentrating, partly because he's too busy watching videos on youtube. The router's parental controls weren't working like I wanted, so now YouTube routes to nowhere. Yay for DNS tables!

It's only a partial measure, as the phone is more clever about getting DNS entries. Adding some parental controls helps cover that gap. Now all I have to do is worry about how to block it over his data connection once he figures that out.

Actually, I'm less worried about that. One of the problems has been he likes to have YouTube in a side window while working on the computer, then stops to watch some of the video, and forgets to go back to his homework. Blocking it on the PC is probably where he needs to have it blocked.

Even when kids figure out how to work around parental controls, they're at least learning some problem solving skills.

(Our carrier lets you set limits and turn data on and off remotely for each phone on the plan, but I only had to do that to Matlock the one time.)
