@Adam, Hello I had the same issue with my teenage daughter who said she was not on Youtube when she clearly was!! My solution was to unplug our computer from the internet until a friend showed me a neat little program called antysocial (www.antysocial.com). It is able to block internet webpages and to unblock them you must enter a password. Also you can specify for how long you want to disable access to a set of websites for in minutes. It's a lifesaver! I hope this helps

Whilst I love Facebook as a parent I worry about about my children being on Facebook when they should be doing their homework.

Can anyone recommend a way to block Facebook until they have finished their homework?

Thanks for any help
Adam
