Optionally, I just thought that if this was too much for them to
do/remember, they could have their own bookmarks, like "Dad - Yoursite"
(http://www.yoursite.com/index.php?person=dad) and Mom - Yoursite
(http://www.yoursite.com/index.php?person=mom) and set the
session/cookie or whatever you're doing based on $_GET['person'].

I would still opt for the login though, even if not secure.


Hi Shawn -

I was hoping to avoid logging in every time, but that may be the best way.
What I still don't understand is:  I thought that Firefox and IE each had their 
own cookies, and that I could determine the user by which browser they used. In 
other words, Firefox's cookie would be for dad and IE's for mom. But I can't 
figure out how to do that. Do Firefox and IE share cookies?
