Once you’ve done this, OS X makes it easy to apply Parental Controls that allow you to decide what site each account has access to, how long the computer can be used each day, and a few other things.

I had a friend who bought gifts in advance for his girlfriend. The true question is, does every girl put that much emphasis on gifts? A girl can tell me she doesn't care about gifts 500 times and I won't believe her. He lives on the Upper West Side of Manhattan with his wife and daughter. He lives on the Upper West Side of Manhattan with his roommate, and his best friend's Netflix account.
Seemed like a great idea, but they ended up breaking up. I know some that say they don't care at all about gifts, but I feel like deep down inside they do.

The first thing to say is that you’re well-served by creating separate user accounts for your children – maybe one for each if you have a few (that could reduce some fighting, I expect!
), but certainly at least one account that’s separate from yours.
Kids and computers go together like peanut butter and jelly. My point is that kids start using computers earlier and earlier, and many of them become very adept and quite precocious at an extremely young age.
