OK, I have a great kid. Works hard and is willing but has ADHD and real problems with self control. Since he was a young un we have had problems with his computer usage and have done various things to close loopholes etc. So he is now Level 2 NCEA and has real problems with concentration by the time his medication wears off. So what happens is this. He has a ton of homework or assignments and comes home , goes through the study and starts work, research,essays whatever. Within half an hour, he is gaming, You tell him off, within half an hour he is gaming, you tell him off, within 15 mins he is gaming etc all night. An essay which should take 40 minutes to complete remains incomplete at 9 O'clock at night. And of course there are endless rows on the topic.
I have told him repeatedly that he can game to his hearts content as long as he is up to date on homework and is doing some revision and is in bed by 10pm. But he doesn't have the self control not to do it. I have tried various things like moving the PC to where I can see it but he just minimises the game so I cant see it behind his 47 inch shoulders!!
I am looking for one of the two things:
A program that lets me tap into his PC and see what is on his screen so I can monitor from a distance or if necessary some kind of security camera placed adjacent to his screen so I can watch him but I am a bit uncertain about how easy that would be as the room is configured poorly for wifi signal. He currently has a modern HP on an Ethernet system and we have wifi and a repeater router thingy but still have less than optimal coverage. I have a Surface which is on all day more or less. I can access wifi and Ethernet.
At 16 this sounds mean but I know him and once he is in a routine he will go with it and we will get over the hump. At school he excels where he has a strict teacher and scrapes by where he has a disorganised or slack one.
So I'd be grateful for any suggestions. Thanks
