I think they're not working hard enough at it to make the surveilance
goal (as opposed to the 'backup their work' goal) plausible.

I certainly agree that this can be used to pry into the kids'

though I do think it admits abuse.

I think motivated kids will blow through any serious surveilance
attempts.
