You know the drill by now -- you shoo your kids off of the computer, only to come back in a few minutes to find that nothing's changed. The time limits that you set are disregarded, and you're at your wit's end trying to craft a computer usage policy for your children that's actually enforceable.

With TimesUpKidz, setting limits on computer time becomes automated and effortless!

TimesUpKids lets you set appropriate limits on computer time for each of your children individually! As soon as you launch TimesUpKidz, you just fill out a simple and intuitive form indicating the computer usage limits on the weekdays and the weekends. If you ever need to loosen anyone's restrictions, as in the case with sick days at home, vacation, or homework, you can do so with a few clicks. Likewise, it's just as easy to lock down computer time completely! With TimesUpKidz, you don't even have to remember to change the time limits back, the program will automatically resume the normal schedule!

Your kids will always be aware of how much time they have left on the computer via pop-up reminders and audible alerts that will be heard even if your child is fully engrossed in a video game! Once time is up, everything stops and a dialog box indicates when computer time is available again. Time accounting is performed based on Windows accounts -- tracking begins once your child logs into the PC, and stops whenever they log off, lock the machine, or switch users!

Plus, TimesUpKidz gives you the ability to see how much time each of your children has used! Best of all, no more fighting over computer time and arguments over sharing, because everyone's got their own time slot!

Justin Magaram Yes. If you purchase it you can install it on one or more computers within your home. Note that it does not aggregate usage time for a single child across multiple computers. It works best when each child regularly uses a single computer.
