    Introduce him to beer and women. He'll soon forget about playing games on his laptop....although you may have a completely different set of problems to deal with.

    Stop claiming JSA and you won't be able to afford internet anymore.

    Wouldn't better parenting be the more sensible approach than trying to spy on childrens computers

    [must not go Elon Musk mode]
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    Yes an option..... BUT we do try to treat him with a bit of respect and trust if we can.....

    Yes he has issues which doesn't help. Out big problem is determining what is caused by his "issues" and what is just bad behaviour. Its the $64K question to be honest.

    Take the laptop at bed time.

    Take the phone at bed time.

    Take the tablet at bed time.

    If they have no device then they cannot use it when they shouldn't. It really shouldn't be complicated to work this out.

    If he complains, ask him what he's trying to access.
    Not on my tp-link unfortunately. I can deny wi-fi access according to a schedule but not wired (he uses ip over power). I can block mac but not to a schedule unfortunately.

    And you think that spyware that emails you what he is running provides respect and trust?
