To be fair, it's always been easy for kids to accidentally find themselves on questionable websites or see questionable contenton the internet . . . heck, this actually happened to me a few times as a kid in the late 90s when home internet was really starting to take off whenever I'd visit webpages and fan sites about certain edgy cartoons like COW AND CHICKEN, or even anime like POKEMON. I can remember one particular old C&C site that somehow took me to a page about how gratuitous sexual images really help sell products (with a picture of a woman's hands tied behind her back while wearing nothing but a American flag swimsuit), or how I somehow ended up on a site full of hentai pics when researching Pokemon. Needless to say, incidents made my mom leery of my internet activity, even though, again, these were complete accidents.The only reason COPPA exists is because millennial and Gen z parents don’t even bother looking after their children - they just completely rely on technology to be the babysitter, and look where THAT eventually leads to!
