    My daughter is only one so this software won’t be helpful to me yet, but I would definitely use it if I had an older child. I am very concerned about the the dangerous content and people that the internet can introduce a child to. I say that I’ll physically monitor my daughter’s computer use, but kids are sly. You need all the defenses you can find!

    Only our laptops connect to the internet, so – for now – I can control what they see pretty easily. The desktop has lots of fun games and software, but no Net. As they get older, I am sure I will be using something like Norton.

    My daughter is too young to use the computer by herself, but she will by the end of the year. I’d love to use this so I can monitor her while I’m at work. If I see sites that are dangerous to the computer, I could easily block them from her use.

    I keep track of with my kids by keeping the computer time to a minimum and keeping the computer in the kitchen (old school I know) That is why I would love an iTouch *ahem* My husband and I are big believers in NO computers in the bedrooms and all activity must be down out in the open. We also have our computer locked so the kids have to ask us to unlock it before they get on. kind of strict I know, but there is just too much out there :)

    My children have been raised to be wary of putting their personal information out there on the internet, and I would say we are all pretty tech savvy.

    Still, this software would really help us when they occasionally make bad choices about, for instance, what sites are okay to download from!

    I see how useful this software could be. While I am working with my girls to be very careful, the back-up can’t hurt!

    I don’t have children currently but, I do worry about what things will be so easily available in the future when I do. Its good to know programs like this exist
