I just set up a second computer for kids’ schoolwork in an upstairs bedroom.
More and more of the kids’ schoolwork is requiring the use of a computer — we definitely needed this. But an internet-connected computer in a private room makes this mom of growing kids worry.
So I decided to set up this computer with a wireless USB adapter. Now this school computer can only access the internet when 1) I say so and 2) I hand over the adapter.
No sneaking online … “just to check email.” And no surfing without supervision. But it’s quick and easy to go online when we want to. I love this easy solution!
