    "So easy to circumvent"

    November 29, 2010  |   By scnadola

    Version: TimesUpKidz 2010-06-25

    Pros

    Decent interface, though nothing special.

    Cons

    So easy to circumvent by killing the process. Silly sw architecture. Any tech-savvy kid will quickly know how to do it...

    Summary

    To easy to circumvent by tech-savvy kids.

    "Stress Reliever!"

    August 22, 2010  |   By dmrmaxie

    Version: TimesUpKidz 2010-06-25

    Pros

    I am no longer the bad guy, constantly asking my child to get off the computer. It really does reduce "discussions" about the computer. My kids appreciate the time limits also and use their time more wisely. I LOVE this software!!!!

    Cons

    I love this product... nothing to not like about it. So easy to use.

    Summary

    It has been such a wonderful product. The communication between me and the creator has also been great. When he sent an email during my trial period and I asked a question, he immediately replied.
    I look forward to stress free computer time use! Thank you, thank you, thank you! All computers should come with this software.

    ""Best in Class" software!"

    August 21, 2010  |   By toytracker

    Version: TimesUpKidz 2010-06-25

    Pros

    - Super easy to set up
    - Very clean interface - nothing unnecessary on the main control panel
    - View usage trends with bar graph
    - Great tech support - emailed a general question on Friday, response on Saturday!

    Cons

    Nothing - it works exactly as advertised

    Summary

    After trying a number of programs to help get a handle on our kids' computer time, this is hands-down the best. PC Chaperone, was too flaky and slow, and my kids could (sometimes) get around it by hanging the program just by starting lots of apps and typing randomly. Other bloated programs like NetNanny and CyberSitter played havoc with my system.

    In the 30-day evaluation, this program proved its stability and resistance to everything my son tried. The programmer gives additional tips on locking down a PC if faced with a truly tech-savvy teen, including some things I hadn't thought of (like locking down the BIOS to prevent changing the time there).

    The interface is clean and simple, and it was a snap to set up. A bar graph feature quickly shows usage trends for the past month, and it's blazingly fast. All software should be so streamlined and flexible.

    About the only thing I can wish for is the ability to add or modify time while logged on to the child's account - there have been rare instances when I wanted to change a time limit "on the fly", and had to log into the Parent account to do so.

    I hope this programmer makes more programs available as his kids get older!

    "Kids with computers must have this software!"

    August 15, 2010  |   By lmallery

    Version: TimesUpKidz 2010-06-25

    Pros

    I agree with others that Windows should include these controls. My kids budget the time given, within the time range set, eliminating arguments and negotiating for "lost time" due to conflicting schedules. As they get older we will use weekly limits.

    Cons

    Not a dislike but a future wish: add a parent app so a parent can make mods to the parameters without logging on to the kids' PCs. We could set lower overall limits and add "bonus" time for swimming, running, riding bikes, whatever.

    Summary

    With active lives we can not make the Windows 7 (or prior) controls work because we cannot always have the kids at home in their "window" of time. This product solves that issue and eliminates negotiating for "add back" time. My boys understand the need for limits but have a harder time dealing with conflicting schedules due to their ages.

    Thank you for this simple but effective solution!

    "Should be part of Windows it is that necessary"

    August 3, 2010  |   By J. Blow

    Version: TimesUpKidz 2010-06-25

    Pros

    This is a major help on two fronts. One, it stops a lot of fighting. The time allotment is the time allotment. Two, it helps the child budget. Trust me as a parent is very, very useful.

    Cons

    None (CNET- why is there a 10 character minimum?)

    Summary

    If you have a child you need this.

    "Even works for Adults!"

    July 28, 2010  |   By broncos_ca

    Version: TimesUpKidz 2010-06-25

    Pros

    It provides the option to "time out" so many minutes of every hour! The Dr told my wife, get off the PC at least 10 minutes of every hour, there is no way shes going to listen to me, with this program installed, im no longer the bad guy:)

    Cons

    I have no complaints about this software.

    Summary

    My wife became addicted to some Facebook Games, this software provides me the ability to keep her from spending 16 hours a day on the computer, it was that bad, so now she cant get on till 10 am, a 1 hour break between 4-5 pm and no access after 10 pm, she also is required to take 10 minute breaks during every hour she is on the computer. The program is very simple to understand and set up. It allows for the moderator (me, the husband) to easily make any adjustments at anytime. I just finished the 30 day free trial and just now purchased this product. I would recommend this to not just parents, but husbands and wifes as well!! It works, and the great part is, its not the same as me having to harp at my wife all the time and her getting mad at me for harping, its no longer me telling her that her "time is up" its the computer telling her, and literaly telling her, it talks to her! It made a problem situation in our relationship easier to deal with! It allows her to be responsible when it comes to her game playing, she adapted to it very fast . The very best part though is i know longer have to be the nagging husband, not that i dont have to nag about other things. The cincher for me is the option to "time out" any amount of minutes of every hour, its a feature that a lot of other software doesnt provide!

    "Even my kids like it!"

    July 25, 2010  |   By mjeanetteg

    Version: TimesUpKidz 2010-06-25

    Pros

    I like that it does the monitoring and is consistent which I could never seem to remember to do. My kids like that they have their own accounts and can use their own time. They have not argued for more time yet!

    Cons

    We use a wireless card to connect to the internet and when the kids are timed-out, it doesn't disconnect the internet, so I can't get on with my account. Adds extra steps, but worth it for keeping kids limited.
