Family Friendly

ISPs or BOFHs may offer - or impose - "family friendly" 'net access, with "unsuitable" sites blocked to protect you from "here be dragons" parts of the 'net.

What if you were to extend that principle to chat? Offer a government-backdoored chat branded as "family-friendly" where your not-at-all-creepy spooks could watch benignly over your kids' chat?

After all, there's precedent. $God has been watching over them for generations so nothing bad could happen. Just update Hansel&Gretel's prayer a bit ... Abends wenn Ich schlafen geh, vierzehn EngelGeister um mich ziehn.
