I came across this great software and thought it might be of interest to some of you, especially those having kids between 2 and 12.
Here is what Magic Desktop can do for you (and your kids):
- Parental control
Not only can you control which programs kids can access, you can also control when and how kids access the approved programs. For example, you can condition their ability to play games upon finishing their homework, completing their chores, or succeeding in our educational programs. Once your child masters the multiplication table and earns enough bonus points he or she can gain access to the puzzle or Internet. "No Homework-No Play!" technology becomes your virtual babysitter.
- Safe internet
My First Browser is the safest Internet browser for kids that exists! You can pick kid-friendly websites and allow your kids to visit only those parent-approved sites. You won't have to worry about what they are doing online, or any unwanted exposures. Parents also get the complete Internet activity history for further peace-of-mind.
- E-mail for kids
Magic Mail is the world's first secure e-mail program designed specifically for kids. Parents administer the kid's address book; kids cannot send or receive e-mails from unknown persons. E-mails from unknown addresses are quarantined and require parental approval. In addition, Magic Mail is completely virus and SPAM protected.
- Play & Learn
Magic Desktop creates a fun and safe environment where kids can learn to use a PC at their own pace. The child-friendly design is perfect for those tiny little hands while the collection of included programs is suitable for all ages. Our educational and entertainment programs challenge kids to solve problems, make mistakes, try again, and succeed!
