Question Worried about what my kids are doing online while I'm at work

Hey Parents!!

I've been having a feeling recently that my kids are going places they shouldn't be going online when I'm not home. I work till 6 or 7 usually on the weekdays and sometime on the weekends. Their father works from early morning till at least 8pm and travels often for his job. My kids ( two sons and one daugther, ages 15, 13, and 17 ) get home from school between 2:30-and 4:30pm. So they have alot of alone time. With four computers in the house. Me and my hushband have tried net nanny and a few other softwares in the past but they always somehow figure out a way to get around them.

This months newsletter from family corner ( I believe busy little hands ) featured a software by This is the link to the newletter, the ad is at the bottom

I was wondering if anyone else here has that problem and has tried this software. I've downloaded the demo and like it like and I like the concept of what it does and how it does it. However I haven't made a choice yet if I'm going to buy the full version or not. So any experiences with the software?? Good or no good?

You could always make a rule - history of computers HAS to be left intact or internet access is TAKEN AWAY. You will only have to disconnect once for a week or two and you will have compliance. With history intact, you can check where the kids go. You can't control what your kids do outside of the home - but it is YOUR home...and if you do not want them on certain sites (and I am sure you have discussed which kind of sites they are to stay away from) it is your right to restrict access. It is a priviledge to have a computer with internet access in your home.

I know people who have actually put a password on their computer. Have you tried this? When it loads up you actually have to have a password to log in.

Online Protection Software for Kids

We use a software called WEE-Blocker. You can filter sites by content, bad language etc. Also you can also set it up so that only certain sites can be accessed. There is a Master User password that is the only one that can make changes to it, and it can not be disabled, by rebooting or turning it off, etc. They have a free version and a paid version. We use the free version and my 9 year-old son can safely go to only the pre-approved sites I have entered for him. So I feel very comfortable with his online experience.
