This may be a tall order. But im looking for a program that I can use to time my daughter and limit or track her computer time.

Ideally I would like her to have her own windows log in and basically when her time is up, she is logged out and cant log in till the next day.

If not that. Do you have any other ideas? Free versions are great. but id even pay for a program.
basically I work and its hard for me to keep track of her time. except I know she spends too much time.

PS, if you know of a program that will actually turn off the computer and kick her out the door an make her play outside that would be better :) Just kidding. I can do that much :)

Thank you

Christy

http://www.cyberpatrol.com/ is supposed to be good. Download the trial and see for yourself as to whether it'll do what you want.

Programs that kick the kids off the PC and outside are readily available. They're called nannies.

Depending on the tech level of your children there is no software available that can guarantee it. If your kids don't know a lot about computers then the nanny will do it's job otherwise good ole fashioned supervision will be the only way to go.
