Parental control software

Parental control software on a child's technology and their computers, in particular, is an absolute must. Here is the reason why: It gives you, the parent, tools to begin to understand where the kid is going and what they are doing online. It allows them to see, what's their usage. It stops that, oops, they stumbled upon that site I didn't want them to go to. It creates some checks and balances between you, the parent, and the child. It's very important to do this earlier, rather than later. It is much easier for a 7 year old to interact and manage and deal with parental control software, than it is for a 13 year old. Lastly, the most important piece, if you put parental control software on your child's computer, you have to take ownership in administering it. You can't just expect to turn it on and it works. It is a process that you, the parent, needs to control.

Technology Expert

Jonathon Fishman is passionate about technology.  Not for what it does, but for where it can lead you. The idea for his company, Ben’s Ranch, struck Jonathon when his stepmother asked his advice in buying a computer for her grandson. She didn't care about the brand or specs, she simply wanted to know how it would help her Grandson.  Jonathon realized that technical support was centered around rescue, repair and complicated conversations. He believed that the conversation should start with how does technology empower the use. Ben's Ranch became the industry standard for personal and small business IT by shifting the conversation repair to usability. Jonathon is happily married and the father of a seven-year old and a nine-year old.
