So, for the simpletons like myself...

I'm just about competent enough with my home network to have set up a Pi-Hole and continue to use my ISP's DNS service (from BT) via the Pi-Hole to allow the fairly simple use of parental controls. I know DNS based parental controls aren't perfect, but lets run with that for now...

So basically, now, in Firefox, I can just go into settings, switch on DoH, and this will completely bypass my Pi-Hole and my ISP's parental control options. What now? I was just getting the hang of being slightly in control, and now that's all gone?
