Is there a timer like in libraries to limit computer time on? I go to work and my son plays games for 12 straight hours, I want to allow him only a couple, but how?

    Hello, you can implement that with tools already included in your system or if they are not included, they can be downloaded from microsoft for free.  Parental controls is one of them.  All you need is an account created specifically for you son and set the parental controls there.  What operating system are you using?  Windows xp, vista and windows 7 provide this tool.  To read more about it, visit following link:

    You can also use third party software like the one mentioned in following link:
