Russia Wants To Ban Children From Public Wi-Fi

So, for the sake of argument, let's just say this gets passed. How in the world would you keep kids off public Wi-Fi without it turning into a pain in the ass for adults to use?

The Communications and Press Ministry has proposed banning children from using Wi-Fi networks in public, potentially making cafes, restaurants and other locations providing the service responsible for enforcing the law. Locations providing Wi-Fi access would be held legally responsible for implementing the rule, and failing to meet the proposed measure would result in a fine ranging from 20,000 rubles to 50,000 rubles ($640 to $1,600).
