This mod helps out parents control what their kids are doing while playing WoW as well as what they can do/read. Because let's be honest, the "Teen" rating is a guideline, not a rule.
Chat Filter DISCLAIMER: THE MAIN FILE CONTAINS A LIST OF COMMON SWEARS!!!
Sorry, but there's nothing I can do about this and it has to have a point of reference in order to filter the chat.
Blizz is lacking in proper filtering of inappropriate language in chat. This became very apparent to me when a friend told me he let his kid play for a bit, but had to ban him from doing so because he started telling his teacher some.... inappropriate comments that he didn't hear at home nor ever said prior to playing. As a result, I created this for him because let's face it, any kid can figure out what this is supposed to say:"go [[****]] yourself, k?"
Instead, this option will nuke the message outright in chats or whispers, resulting in the message never being seen at all.
Enabling this will cause all messages from people on your friends list to be displayed unfiltered. This also functions as a slight workaround for issues that may be caused by friends who may whisper/say words that cause "false positives" in the filter, such as "associate". Such "false positives" from other sources, however, will still not show and most likely not even be noticed anyways.
When this is enabled, the player will automatically decline any group invitation. Helpful if, let's say, a certain 3 yr. old decides to accept a group invitation while running around on the tank you're leveling in Westfall. Then starts chatting with them with "ht49ghwterg9".
Not that I'd know anything about that.
Hide Social Buttons/Tabs
This strips the social frame of any "excess" elements, leaving only the friends tab/list. See screenshot for the end result.
Slash Command (/parent) (decided not to follow the typical "slash = addon name" for this one)
When you attempt to open the options, you will be prompted to set up a password. Same setup as anywhere else (screenshot 1). Afterwards, when you attempt to access the options again you will be asked to provide that password (screenshot 2).
Again, this feature isn't foolproof. Anyone who knows where to look can find the password. But this is designed to protect the younger crowd and it's pretty safe to assume most won't know how to do this. Chalk up another one for Blizz's "no encryption" policy.

+ There, that should stop the kiddies from deleting all my gear....
+ Settings should properly save across logins. You probably haven't noticed this if you haven't changed anything past initial install.
+ Option added to hide "excess" social frame stuffs. Friends tab is the only thing that remains, but you're not gonna be able to do much with it now.
+ While filtering chat, you can now allow your kids to still get unfiltered chat from friends without worrying about "false triggers".
+ More happy for parents!
