It was an electronic, blue glow sneaking out from the crack under the bedroom door that caused the father to fly into a rage. He opened up the door, walked over to the computer and yanked the cord out of the wall. And the room went dark.
But that same night a light bulb turned on, and it was the idea for ComputerTime. The father was a co-founder of SoftwareTime and the room was his daughters. She was a great kid and a straight-A student, but she also liked to IM her friends late into the evening.
The rule was that bed time was time to go to sleep. Not time to sneak in a few more hours of chatting online. Even the best parents who have great kids can use a hand with making sure the rules are followed, and ComputerTime was born not long after that.
Time-of-Day Limits Allow Use At Specific Times
ComputerTime lets you set Time-of-Day Limits for making sure that people don’t get on the computer at times that you don’t want them for. Some examples of uses for Time-of-Day Limits include:
- Making sure computers aren’t used during bedtime hours
- Ensure that kids only use the computers when parents are present
- Prevent distractions in the morning when kids need to be preparing for school
- Set aside hours for family time or reading
