1. A computer-implemented method for controlling access to an electronic media source comprising:
receiving one or more achievement goals and degree of access information for a first user from a second user, wherein the
degree of access information includes limitations of access to the electronic media source including at least one of a time
limit, a day of week limit, a media category limit, a content title limit, or a rating limit;

receiving assessment information for the first user from one or more 3rd party network-accessible input data sources, the assessment information related to the achievement goals;

linking the 3rd party network-accessible input data sources;

aggregating the received assessment information;
aggregating knowledge of electronic media source usage comprising at least knowledge of electronic media source usage by a
first user;

determining when the first user attempts to access an electronic media source;
receiving information related, to use of the electronic media source;
determining that an identity of a user of the electronic media source is that of the first user based on the received information
related to use of the electronic media source and based on the aggregated knowledge;

determining whether the achievement goals are met by the first user using the received assessment information in response
to an access inquiry from the electronic media source; and

forwarding an access signal to the electronic media source based on the determination of whether the achievement goals are
met; wherein the access signal includes a grant signal when the achievement goals are met.
