Version: KidDesktop 1.2.3
The pros of Kids Desktop is worry free for me. My children can use the family computer now all by themselves. They love being able to go onto the internet and look at certain sites.
There are no cons.
This is a great product and we are so happy that we tried it. My children had their own computer because I was scared what might happen if they were on our computer. Well now they can use my computer any time they want with Kids Desktop.
This is a great program for families. It is very easy for both parents and children to use. The children have control of where they go with sites I have approved. KidDesktop is good for any age child.
I have nothing negative to say.
There are so many great things about KidDesktop!! I love that my kids can control what sites they go to because I have added only sites that I find appropriate. I don't have to type in the sites for them because they are all there with an icon we chose and they are familiar with. I can also choose the name of the site for easy recognition for my children. It will also tell them verbally what site it is when the put the mouse over the icon. I find it very easy to add sites to their desktop when I find new sites that I like, and as my children get older. I can also control what sites they can print from plus other great options. Over all this is a great program that all familes should have. It gives both control to the parent and child.
