I’ve installed netnanny on several clients’ PCs and was quite impressed. It has timer options as well as blocks site access based on criteria you configure. It operates at a low access level, so it works for all browsers, chat programs etc. It has good reporting too, showing what your child is up to and how many attempts were made to access forbidden sites. It also has an override function where you can grant access on a per-request basis from your child. And much more.
There’s a small annual fee to keep the service active, but only a paid service can afford to keep the block lists up to date as well as provide fast proxy service.
I highly recommend it, and don’t think there’s really anything else out there that is even remotely comparable in terms of functionality, effectiveness, and robustness of operation.
I just disconnect the mouses (mice?) on our desktop computers and hide them. I’m not a techie, but this works fine.
take the fuse out of the box.
Most teenagers know more about computers than we do, so trying a lockout might not work, but few know how to change a fuse
Your home, your rules, if not, software won't help.
Turn off the router?
I love this suggestion.!
If she wants to use the computer again, SHE will have to deal with loading it with a new OS, any way she can, (at her expense, of course.)
Ummm...my daughter has Attention Deficit Disorder, and needs to stop watching Youtube and go to bed so she can get a good night's sleep. It's called "parenting".
