How do you verify that the respondent is the parent or legal guardian?
I really don't understand what you are getting at. COPPA doesn't require you to VERIFY the age. Only to notifiy members that IF they are under 13 they must do certain things. It's a law in the US and following it is very simple. If a 10 year old wants to click past the age verification and state they are 15...then I am within the law. If I have a 10 year join WITHOUT COPPA and a parent wishes to create a hassle...I could be found guilty of breaking the law. It's that simple.
On my site where I had COPPA...I would get a fax with the parental information and their signature giving permission for the child to be on the site and to collect personal information. Once I even got a letter in the mail with the signed form.

Because I don't like wasting my time as it's a valuble commodity. And you don't sound like you are in the US so COPPA doesn't apply to you.
