    Parental controls

    Greetings, and thank you for those who have posted Softmod guides on this site. It was a long journey but I'm finally there!

    A question...There are the usual parental controls on the Wii the I am familiar with, blocking access to age inappropriate games and the web.

    What I would really like however is something to restrict the time my kids spend in total or at one sitting, or blocking certain times of day (when they should be getting ready for school or doing homework)

    Are there any mods/tools/apps that can do that?

    I am presently using a Wii softmodded to 4.1U and use Configurable USB Loader.

    Thanks!

    Not that I am aware of but you can do that as a parent

    You could get an outlet timer and have it off when you don't want them using it.

    If it was me I would just talk to them about it.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Thanks the response. Of course I had considered both options.

    Regrettably I have already left my home early before they find that window of opportunity to play, but I continue to talk to them of course. [Removed - Please read the forum rules]

    Outlet timer had been tried before and I'll re-try again. I just hoped with the Wii having a built in clock and calendar there might be a way.

    If anyone else has a suggestion I'd be grateful - maybe I should just learn to program the thing myself! Now...if I could find my box of punch cards.....

    Yes that would be difficult if you're not there. Well, that's the only thing I can think of (although I'm sure they could figure the timer out if they are mischievous).

    If you notice my edit in your post above I removed some info I think you probably meant to leave out of your post. Make a note of that for next time
    Damn I suck!!!!
