  • no.

    maybe you're online too much then.

    If it upsets them, maybe you should spend time with them instead?

  • No, but then mine has his own pc and goes outside alot... and since I have a laptop I can take it outside with me to watch him...

    You might want to let your children know that you are allowed "ME" time or Mommy time and maybe do most of your CMing in the evening hrs when they are in bed... or make CM time and let the kids know that this is YOUR time on the pc and if they act up while you are having your time then there could be conquences...
    And after your time on the pc, do something with the kiddo's...

  • If your kids get upset with you being online and knows specifically what site maybe that is a sign that you are on WAY too much.

  • If they are acting up worse when you are on the pc then that is their way of telling you they want your attention. Spend more time with your kids and less time on the computer.

  • I think that you need to spend more time with your child. Read a book together, play a game, cook a meal, go for a walk or a bike ride.
