Ok. Since I am so webcentric being so consumed with my web site design and seo rankings business, it makes perfect sense that my kids would pick up some web knowledge just by osmosis. I know things move pretty quickly in Los Angeles and now one of daughters is addicted to email and this brings up an interesting conundrum as a parent. How much do i want my kids to experience personal freedom so that they are able to grow up and mature into therapist free adults. And in this age of instant “on” where everything is up for grabs, how do i set limits on their exposure to the world at large.
Hence, monitoring software. There are plenty of safe surfing tools to try to keep locked into specific web sites but at the end of the day they can get around the limits you place. So I am more inclined to let them feel they are free and to guide them just a little bit less than a back street driver and yet i still want to maintain some sort of protective control over what they do online. So with free monitoring software I can see what they do and though I risk them hitting bad sites or doing things online that are lacking in good judgement, at least I can find out after the fact and then try to take steps to stop it in the future. It’s a catch 22 situation and I err on the side of letting them try new things and seeing if they can on their own make the right decisions.
If you are on my side of the fence, you may want to check out All in One Keylogger which lets you to read your family members chat conversations, look at their e-mails, and sites they have surfed. By activating All in One Keylogger, you can monitor everything including blocking unwanted sites/programs. The Key Logger allows you to register all keystrokes typed, including language-specific characters, talk and messages conversations, passwords, e-mails, clipboard, microphone sounds, captured screenshots, desktop, and Internet activity.
