I don't have any kids, but IMHO, I would think YES, it IS ethical for parents to use a keylogger on their children, if they knew how. What with what is going on nowadays, with the predators and all, i would think most parents would love to use a keylogger, like I said, IF they knew they were out there and knew what a keylogger is and does. Being able to monitor kids, especially at sites like www.myspace.com
, would be invaluable, and a great help to law enforcement officials, if they should become involved. A keylogger should be on the list of wedding presents when a couple gets married. Next wedding I get invited to (and I haven't been to a wedding in years), I'll give 'em a keylogger.
Just my $0.02.
