For iPhone/iPad/iOs
Check out their quite easy and powerful content restrictions.
Suggestion: Have someone else have the password (or half and half with a spouse) and do the following:
Lock installing apps + remove browser + add apps you need (possible rules: no games, no sports, no entertainment, etc.).
[Occasionally an app will have a built in browser/or need to access a certain website - just go back in to settings (with password) and add that website].
There is time restrictions and more features too.
(May not be enough for teenagers - consult your own advisers - this solution sure beats doing nothing and there is no excuse)

Depends if it's an iPhone or android. With an iPhone, there are free possibilities.

very easy to block whatever you want. Take it to Tag (or whoever sold you the phone) and they'll guide you.

That is a great option for those that want to block the browser entirely. Not if you you want filtered browsing.

Parental controls IIRC let someone else make the code.
Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
BIG PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IDEAS.

On a Kindle, if you forget your password, you can reset the whole machine and start over. 
So to check that that didn't happen, you  need to periodically log onto the machine and be sure your password hasn't been changed. (The user doesn't know your password, right? So he makes a new one.)  But that will only tell you that someone over-rode the parental controls.  It will NOT help the user "un-see" what's already been seen.

Wrong. I took mine to the Sprint Store who sold the phone to me. They were able to leave whatever I needed open and block the rest.
