I have a 12 year old addicted to the computer in general and the net in particular; I'd like to see a program that would allow me, as a parent, to control both. There are a couple to be found under downloads.com, but the reviews they get are poor, and the programs themselves are expensive.
Here is what I see:
Kid Time Control - controls total computer time per day and/or per week, allow extra time on weekends and holidays or specially designated days. Time not used one day can be 'saved' for another, if set that way in options.
Kid Web Control - controls access by browsers, chat, and messaging programs, but allows updates by antivirus and antispy programs if at all possible.
Kid Total Control - does both of the above!
