Netopia Parental Controls

I am a concerned parent who wishes to keep my kids clear of the seedier side of the internet. McAfee Parental Controls interferes with my comcast POP3 mail server. I have to turn McAfee Parental Controls off to receive e-mails. NetNanny also gets in the way. NetNanny locked my system up because the word "s_x" (I don't want your news reader to freeze up!) appeared on a job application.

I am down to considering Netopia Parental Controls. Two questions:

1) From people who have used it, what do you think?

2) My kids are like me, inventive and smart. What is to prevent them from simply disconnecting the cable modem from the Netopia 8586 and plugging the cable feed directly into the cable modem? Is there installed software that detects the loss of the Netopia 8586 and locks things up?

--Thank you,
