Have you considered asking them what they are doing?

You would be surprised how much logging various software packages do.
There are always chat logs (unless deleted) - always usage logs - unless

Work with them as a first instance, failing that have them do the work
physically beside you.

Most traffic coming out of PCs these days is SSL encrypted, and you are not
likely to extract meaningful data from a session.

Kindest regards,

Be nice to your parents.

Go outside and do something awesome - Draw, paint, walk, setup a
