Parental Control Software
I would like to know about what parent's experiences have been with screening devices
or screening programs for computers? We have a MAC. Much thanks.
I need it now.
The downside was it can be a pain. It can block legitimate sites, requiring parents to go through a routine to OK them (which of course always happens at midnight when something is due the next day..) At one point it blocked all google images; a real pain for my art student child - and it took quite a bit of work to find a workaround for that. It took over an hour to manage to uninstall it on one of my kids 18th birthdays (perhaps their favorite gift!) But the phone support is good.
I would recommend this if you have a serious need to block. do what's necessary mom
I'd like help finding computer software to monitor the
amount of time my teen spends playing games. Any assistance
would be appreciated; where have you found programs? can
they tell you the amount of time on different games? how
easy are they to install and use?
I would prefer something transparent so we can all see the
amount and talk about it together.
Mom tired of arguing
We need to put parental controls on our computer. It's an Imac, the newer one with the intell chip. I'm frustrated because there seems to be limited choices for macs, and I've heard that these kinds of controls really slow down the computer. We also don't want to have separate profiles for each user. It's a family computer and we sometimes work on the same projects and it is just too complicated to have separate profiles for everyone. We have several browsers, and tho I guess we could limit that I'd prefer something that would work with different browsers. I'm only interested in blocking porn, not chat groups, politics and violence. Is there anything out there that will work for us? Unfortunetly it is not possible to get the guilty party to knock it off. I am sad to be in this position and very grateful for any advice that you might have, Thank you
