Parent Tools is a powerful tool for monitoring, controlling, and limiting access to AOL Instant Messenger. With this software, you can silently save all conversations, block features, and limit online time. The online time limits limit online time to a certain number of hours per day, and the online schedule feature lets you set times per day the user can access AIM. Parent Tools for AIM can block all IMs, IMs from select screen names, all chat rooms, or chat rooms with select titles.
The software will also optionally disable access to features that can be used to send objectionable material (Direct Connect IMs, Talk feature, chat invites). The monitoring options allow the user to either monitor all screen names, or select screen names. When monitoring select screen names, the individual settings, time limits and blocked features can be set for each different screen name in the list. The optional stealth mode feature will hide the program from users.
