When she is old enough (preferably around the age of 14) the computer she can use will be located in a public room and she will damn well know that hiding screens when mum and dad come into the room will be an instant ban. To be honest i don't worry about her seeing violence on a video game its more the cyber bullying and potential perverts out there that worries me more. I can assure most people would agree that a child loses more innocence to sex in todays society then the effects of a graphic video game.

This is called parenting. If more parents stopped trying to use their game console/pc/internet/tv as a babysitter and followed the lead of Sat, we wouldn't be in this mess.
internet != babysitter.

My dad actually sealed the computer cable between the wall and the back of the power supply in a metal cast. He then cut the cable in half and bonded it to a key lock. When you put the right key in and turned it, you could use the computer...

I actually stole the key and got a locksmith to cut me one so I could use the computer without asking...
