your child. The parent tour can be found

Here we see the initial menu screen after logging in.
Basic options include Reading and checking for new messages, writing
and composing a new messages, viewing or editing the contact manager,
and creating mailboxes to store messages.
There is also an icon to adjust personal settings such as colors/themes,

The Inbox view has columns that can be sorted ascending or
descending by "From", "Subject", or "Date" fields. You can
between read and unread messages, unread being in bold and include a
yellow message icon. Select several messages and move them to
customized folders or the trash. The search button allows
the capability of searching through all of your mail to find a particular
message. You can also display a maximum number of message
per page, allowing less clutter.

name, Full Name, E-Mail Address, and Phone #.
This lists both the child's contacts as well as the shared contacts.
Shared contacts are global to your family. Rather than having
to add certain contacts to each child's list, you can add them to the
global list, which will appear on each one of your children's Contact
There is another layout for the less experienced user. We call
it the easy version. With scaled down features, it makes it easier
to use. It is an option you can set in the Parent Control Panel.
