Computers are the place for children. This is the place where they can sharpen their agility as well as their abilities. They can learn and make new friends. Whats more, the Internet provides information for homework assignments. So far, so good. But they also need to be protected from the computer-for one thing, so that they dont lose their sense of time and forget to go out and play with their friends once in a while, and for another, because of the dangers lurking on the Web. That's why responsible parents everywhere install Child Control on every computer that their children use.
# Give children an "allowance" of time
Child Control keeps track of the time your kids spend in front of the computer. Once their time is up, the computer automatically shuts down and wont start up again-something any kid can understand. Our experience has shown that Child Control verdict is accepted without arguments-there is no debate and no discussion. Another way of looking at it: Child Control gives your kids back time that they are then free to spend in other ways.
# Safety on the Internet
It isnt always easy to watch your young ones every move on the computer-and it's even harder to follow what they are doing on the Internet. Child Control can also help you here, by automatically shutting the door on their Internet connection once their allotted time is used up. Parents can easily regulate how many hours a day each child can spend on the Internet, and even specify the precise hours of the day when the gate to the worldwide online community will be available.
# The Dark Side of the Internet
Sure, you can find any number of sites that are useful for learning, reference, and games. Then there are the other ones that are clearly inappropriate for children and teens. Some parents also worry about their children ending up on one of these sites by accident, or as the result of a dare. These fears can be quickly put to rest by Child Control, which has already made a name for itself in Internet monitoring.
# Control Internet access using filters
Child Control lets you activate filters to block all websites oriented toward violence or adult content. You can also filter out specific words that may appear on various websites. Alternatively, you can limit access to only the websites that you specify. In that case, your kids will only be able to access these sites, and all others will be off-limits. In the current version, parents can also limit their kids stay on certain sites to a specified time, so that eventually they will have to put their online games away and get back to their homework.
