Using Spyrix Personal Monitor to Improve Children’s Academic Performance

Parental controls: Keep your child safe on the internet


In this case study, we examine how the Spyrix Personal Monitor program helped a concerned father of two 15-year-old teenagers improve their academic performance. The father marked a significant decline in his sons' grades, which prompted him to seek a solution that would enable him to monitor their activities remotely.

The father noticed a decline in his sons' grades, although his sons assured him they always completed their homework and did their best to study better. Due to the parents' work schedules, they could not check if the boys were truly dedicated to their studies. As the final years of high school are critical for college and university applications, the father sought a way to ensure that his sons were spending their time productively.

Like many parents, the father first supposed that the teenagers wasted their time on the Internet or gaming. So, he decided to install the Spyrix Personal Monitor program on the home computer and his sons' laptops. This software allows for remote monitoring of computer activities, including logging keystrokes, capturing screenshots, and tracking web browsing history. By utilizing this program, the father could understand how his sons spent their time when he was away from home.

After a week of monitoring, the father discovered that his sons were not honest about their studies with him. The monitoring program collected a significant amount of data, including chat messages and times when the computers were turned on and off. Judging by this data, the father concluded that instead of doing homework, the sons spent most of their time hanging out with friends while their parents were at work. Armed with this information, the father had a serious conversation with his sons, emphasizing the importance of education and the price of neglecting their studies.

After the talk, the father continued to use the Spyrix Personal Monitor to track his sons' activities. Over time, he saw a notable improvement in their study habits as they began to work on their homework more consistently. Consequently, their academic performance improved.

This case study shows the benefits of using Spyrix Personal Monitor as a tool for parents to monitor their children's computer activities and ensure they prioritize their education. Having valuable insights into how the teenagers spent their time, the father could address the issue and encourage better study habits. In turn, this led to improved academic performance and a renewed focus on their education.
