Parental Controls on netflix? Jo&Ry Due May 11 (girl); 33 kids; Manchester, New Hampshire 1375 posts

So when I got my income tax I had promised Rylee to get her a tablet...NOW before I have any comments about her only being three and blah blah blah...because I think the same thing...I wanted to get her the Innotab 2 or whatever it was but that was $100 and the tablet I got her was like 80 with a 2 year protection plan.(also i heard it sucked!) Well I downloaded some learning apps, as well as some cute little dora and spongebob ones and she has one where it reads books to her...ANYWAYS IM RAMBLING...I have been letting her watch if she chooses to go to bed early for it her shows on netflix for an hour or so for her "wind down" time...but I caught her watching a movie she shouldn't have been watching...it was only like 5 minutes in but I don't like it...and with all the movies on there I don't think its anywhere near appropriate...anyone know if there is anyway to put a block on it so she can only watch certain shows/movies?

Probably, but I've never looked for them.

You might have to log on their website from a computer to access it.

There's a downside to netflix and parental controls. If you turn off parental controls you need to wait 24 hours before watching anything thats rated differently than your parental controls allow

Under "preferences" there is a parental control option where you can only allow certain ratings.




Parental controls allow you to block mature titles from being shown onscreen or added to your instant Queue.



  • All Movies
  • R and below
  • PG-13 / TV-14 and below
  • Unrated Family and below
  • PG and below
  • G and below

No, it doesnt even have that on her tab it just automatically brings everything from netflix up when you click the app

Lol yeah I caught her in the act today but she had been talking about someone dying and all these crazy things lately so I'm thinking this is it...plus i realized when she ran around saying "I WIPE MY OWN ASS" that this "peeing movie" she kept referring to was big daddy. lol I mean big daddy I wouldn't even really "freak out" if she watching...I would shut it off but I'm sure she has heard me say ass more times than they say it in big daddy lol but she was watching a movie about a serial killer today and like I said it was only the first 5 minutes but thats the last thing I need is her watching people kill people? NO. tablet was a no go for tonight until I delete netflix or figure it out so she cant get on that stuff
