i am a dad who wanted his kids to put more time to studying and putting the internet to wise use. however, my kids would ask permission to use the internet for research, but when i'm not looking they are on the social networking sites. once they notice i'm there, they'll minimize the browser or go to another tab.
hey, it's ok for my wife and i that our kids are keeping touch with friends using these social networking sites -being great inventions of this era. but we made it clear to them there is proper time for everything: a time to spend with friends and a time to spend studying.
iNet Protector was doing wonders at first until i noticed my kids were on facebook at a blocked schedule time
. i knew i put all the known social networking sites in the BLOCKED SITES (and allowed everything else) but how was my son able to access facebook?
it took me two months to discover how this was possible when i caught another son of mine red-handed. HE TOLD ME THAT INSTEAD OF JUST USING "HTTP," THEY USED "HTTPS
thus, instead of http://www.facebook.com/
, they typed in https://www.facebook.com/
. all my sons used the same for twitter and similar sites.now, please, how can i block FACEBOOK (specially), twitter and the other social networking sites so my kids can get good grades by studying more?
