This question already has an answer here:

I would like to know if there is a program that will restrict my gaming time to X amount of hours per day. However, all of the programs I have found are designed to be 'Net nannies' as well, and require a parent to have administrative powers on the same machine while I would not. As I have my own PC which I need admin access on, this would not work.

Try RescueTime, which can track how much time do you spend on what and send it to your boss a.k.a. Dad.

Or try AppLocker for Windows
