Default Re: Parent in trouble

OK. when it comes to recording and changing passwords, i have become a rather skilled person.

First- The best software for changing any Password in Windows 95,98,2000,Xp is a cool program called ERD Commander, now sadly the full copy needs to be paied for, but if you know how to download software im sure you can find away around that..lol. There is trial version but which allows you to boot into any user setup on a PC/laptop.

Now if you want to record what your son is up to. There is software out there that records ever single key he enter's. Now this software is called Key logging software and can be found with a simple GOOGLE Search.

Now for all your tech's and mothers out there, this site has all the key logging and password unlocking software you need. http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/B...boy-s-key.html

Its all safe and i have used it to safe people alot of money.

He could be a geek by day and a gangster by night!

Back on topic, personally I think you should talk to him. Be nice, but don't be a pushover, or he'll just use it as an advantage. Just be honest with him and have a father to son talk. Just let him know that it is your responsibility as a parent to know where your son goes and who he's with.

I'm 17, and if I just want to hang out all I need to do with tell my parents, tell them who I'll be going with and for how long. If I'll come home late, I'll call a bit earlier and just tell my dad. Not only do I feel more honest to myself, I know my parents will feel better about themselves as well. I would rather do that than sneak out of the house or something to go hang out with friends.

Also, if you need to take a look at the laptop, just tell him what you're going to do and take it. Personally, I would rather have my parents be honest with me, tell me what they want to do on my computer. If my dad wanted to know if I had porn, fine. I'll just show him. I would rather be honest with him than have him sneak on my computer without me knowing.

I believe anyone that actually helped you crack this password has made you that much worse at parenting. YOu seem to be a pushover, as others have stated talk to him, if he doesn't listen call the cops etc but going behind is back in my eyes is bad parenting skills.

Grow some balls

I say it like it is, now get over it.

sounds like you need a usb thumbdrive based password slurper prog (also can be run of other usb based storage devices like ipods).

you plug it in when the computer is on and it records all the saved passwords on the computer (ie. login info, saved IM and Internet Explorer passwords).

I had code for it in 2600 (hacker's quarterly) but have since lost the magazine.

Good Luck

Word. Being sneaky and trying to access his laptop behind his back will only make him mad, and most likely lose respect for you.

Default Re: Parent in trouble

I thank you all for the replies given.

The only reason as to why I would even concider it such a thought is just how easy it would be for him to lie. If I take away the laptop, which I have on several occasions, my son would either just do what he needed to do either at school or at a friend's house. Even still, after we come to a sort of agreement, the issue still remains. My son is more technologically inclined than I am. I often as for help here and there and vise versa. I'm just an old man in his eyes, and pulling a fast one on me wont take alot, as ashamed as I am to admit. I feel that as long as I can make it seem as if nothing were going on, he would let his guard down enough to leave some of things exposed. I've had to meet with several parents of the course of a few years, dealing with the misadventures of my son and fellow schoolmates. If it were to be something with a girlfriend or whatever, I would understand. But I can't seem to understand why something so trivial would cause so much skepticism. I was a kid before too, and I did sneak out the house and have fun...ect. But now a days, the coceptual opinion on moral right and wrong is so skewed that his version of doing the right thing could very well be up there with drinking, doing drugs, having unsafe sex...ect. I am a single parent, and I'm trying to do the best for both my son and I. We do get along together, something I'm very proud of. But he is 17. It hasn't taken much to stray from the path before. I just want to be able to be there for my son before something happens at which point I would curse myself for not doing enough.


I just find it unnerving that the only thing he does anymore is just go on his computer and then promptly leaves. It isn't like we have not talked before. But really, what does reponsibility mean in the face of social pressure? Its easy to say grow some balls. Declining grades, suspicious behavior, ambiguous "friends", really, what can a parent do but have trust? I can place all the trust I possibly can towards him but to just leave it at that would be ignorant. I'd rather have him hate me now for trying to do what I feel is best rather than him having to end up somewhere he doesn't want to be.


John.

I'll tell you what my dad said

"Toss em in the fire and they will find a way out"

Honsetly one of my friends is simliar however he was gay... his dad still doesn't know, and if his dad would ever find out his dad would dissown him. Keep a good reletionship with your son and I assure you he'll stand aganist peer pressure from better, I ocne walked into a house where it was a meth lab, as soon as I figured what was going on, I quickly walked out cause I would hate to have to explain to my parents what I was doing in a meth lab. After that I was still friends with the friend that took me there, but I made it clear to him IDC what he does, as long as he doesn't invovle me which he never did...

In all honsety your son is 17, he is growing up and wants more indepence, conversation is going drop etc. Honsetly I see this time and time again, if you get too picky he will get pissed and possibly do somthing extermely stupid. Also if he is tech savy changes are he has several pieces of software to scan for spyware, and what if the keylogger or somthing will be considered spyware? Imagine if he figured out what you did, if anything he'd be extermely ticked off at you I know I would be. If he is tech savy and takes care of your PC your keylogger will get discovered.
