Hi There, Planning to get a new notebook for my 13yo. Well, hopefully, this COVID19 lockdown ends soon! :mask: Well I'm thinking about the touch screen and non-touch screens, they have their own pros and cons. If for gamer I don't see the point of having a touch screen I think. However, if you are always on the go like students, it is quite convenient to have a touch screen laptop. Well, they say a disadvantage of touch screens though is cost, additional weight, battery life, and viewing in direct sunlight. Any other inputs to share? I saw this useful reference - thewiredshopper.com/touch-screen-vs-non-touch-screen-laptops Thanks, Mitch

Hi Everyone, My name is Mitch, I am a homeschooling/ work-from-home / single mom of 2, a 13 year old girl and a 3 year old boy. I am very happy to have found this site, hoping I could learn from others, show support and gain some advice as well on just everyday parenting. Having said this, due to my profile above, my growing concern is the content of what my kids view online. Well, originally, it wasn't really a concern, until I read an article, and it appears like there are a lot of parenting controls already available in the market. With the law of supply and demand, this can mean that there is really a need. I am confident my kids listen to what I say, what to view on the internet and what not, but I understand too that they are still vulnerable to a lot of things. I was thinking, just for precaution, why not try these parental controls. There are a lot of options. Has anyone here used parental controls? Any suggestions? I am hoping to get something that's easy to use and at the same time suitable for my kids' ages. At the same time, whatever parental control I am going to purchase, I would be really happy if it would have a tracking device.
T hank you so much in advance for your thoughts! Mitch
