  2. This really is a little goofy for a few reasons.

    1. Parental controls can/should be set at the box. Most quality cable and satellite services have pretty extensive parental controls.

    2. If a parent forgoes the parental controls and relies on this remote…what happens when junior changes channels on the box itself?

    3. (and most important) – Any child young enough to use a remote like this really should have an adult nearby monitoring what they’re viewing (or doing).
