Well, here's the skinny...
I have, at home, the combination of a 15 year old daughter, an eMac and iChat. She uses the eMac for schoolwork, but alas (as you may have guessed), she is also always on iChat!
When I complain, she say "But I have my away message up!". Of course, that doesn't keep her friends from chatting or her from responding.
At the risk of my completely destroying her "social life" (her words ), I'd like to know if there is some way to control iChat's "up time", (time of day, or total time per day, or not-with-other-apps-running, or whatever).
PS. And for the record, am am also using standard, low-tech parenting techniques, but still... a Mac system solution would be a good addition to my toolbox.
