Im looking for a way to limit my kids overall daily time on the internet.

Im not looking to block certain social networking sites, or to block keywords (that is easy to do anyway), or to prevent them going on the internet between certain times. I want them to manage their daily allowance. So a per-user time limit, whichever device they are using; xbox, smartphone, pc, ipad.

it seems that a password to access the internet is the best way. Impossible to add software to all those different devices (and any new ones their friends bring in!). They are very savvy and would easily work out ways to use proxy to bypass most software solutions anyway.

If anyone has found a solution to this please let me know.

I just installed Net Nanny instead of Windows Family Safety. DD prefers it, she says it's working better as it doesn't block things when it shouldn't and it gives me more information if I want it - I now know that she has been visiting a free site where they could download films; Net Nanny blocked it whereas WFS didn't.
