I think you are

The letter 'X'

I am four corners

The shape of the letter is four corners, meeting at a point

I both destroy and tantalize

X can be a symbol for deletion, or a film rating later adopted by pornography

I intersect

The shape of the letter, again

Children should not watch me

Again refering to "X-rated" films

  • $\begingroup$ @MichaelRize, stick to one thing, either the letter X or X-rated movies $\endgroup$ – user9174 Mar 3 '15 at 3:36

  • $\begingroup$ @MichaelRize I prefer to make riddles very literal (e.g. the word "I" always used for the same thing, so "I sound like" if it's a homophone), but everyone has their own style - don't let yourself be pressured too much! :-) $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Mar 3 '15 at 21:20

I am four corners.

A TV set is generally square or rectangle which are shapes with four corners

I both destroy and tantalize.

Watching TV is time killer at the same time entertaining

I intersect.

Time spent watching TV means less time for socialising, so it intersects/cuts your relationship

Children should not watch me.

Watching TV is bad for eyes and children should have more outdoor activities

Answer:

I am a TV set
