Hi,

I read something on another forum about being addicted to the computer when doing homework and someone said he should try a certain program, now I forgot what it was called but basically it allowed you to block some programs from starting when you double clicked/clicked them. It'd have some kind of message saying, you're not allowed to open this program at the time. There might've been a timer for it too, I don't remember. You could close it with Task Manager. Anyone know what program I'm thinking of?

If you don't then alternatives would be nice. Thank you.

Hi, I think you need something that allows the homework to be done using the computer...most kids are these days! Where I live, you have to!

Have you asked the school- they may have some help for you! Ask the teacher, or other parents....

Yes, there are timer apps....be very careful searching for this type of software.

You set the time, but what happens if the homework still isn't done?

Program Control in some firewalls (e.g.: ZA; PC Tools FireWall Plus) might be able to accomplish this; however, I doubt it would be on a user-by-user basis.
