Isn't torture illegal? Lock up my nephew!
My 5 year old nephew loves to play the computer games from pbs.com and nickjr website, and whatever else he can get into for kids online.
However, he seems to think he needs the volume at FULL BLAST!!! The background "jingles" are only about 5-10 second loops... over and over and over and over again!
And this starts at 7 or 8 in the morning. Because I work at night, I try (being the key word here) to sleep until at least 10am. My dad's computer room is right above my bedroom, so I can hear it perfectly well!
And then he leaves them on when he goes off to do other stuff like eat a snack or watch TV, so they go all day for no good reason!
I've done a search about volume blocks on Windows, and apparently you can't. Maybe in parental controls...but I'll look later. I could just buy him headphones, but highly doubt he'd even use them :/
And yes, I have asked Ryan to turn it down. Several times. It's amazing he has an attention span 3 hours long for games, but when I say something, it lasts maybe 3 minutes before he forgets >_<
