Apologies if this has been answered before but your answer may prevent a family argument.
We only have one computer in our home and most of the family use it.
I am having modest success with my sites and my son is wanting to add Adsense to his site too.
Are we able to run two Adsense accounts on one computer? I have told my son that we aren't but I want to be sure.
Hope you can confirm either way.

The accounts will still be associated, though, and if one person messes up then both accounts could easily be terminated.
I login from all over the place.
I would watch out with that. Logging into your adsense account from many different pc's is asking for an invalid click ban.
If anybody clicks on one of your ads from any computer you ever logged into your account from, google wil think you clicked on your own ads.
If this happens once it might not be a problem, if it happens regularly, it can be a big problem.
I think that I will write to Google to find out there opinion as suggested.
I trust my son and he is very responsible but I have worked too hard to risk losing the account.
If Google do allow me to do this then I certainly will ensure that he is fully understands the importance of not messsing round with the Adsense account.
PS. I am not computer literate but would it be an option to buy another computer and link the computers up via a router or would that not make any difference? It would be too expensive to buy another telephone line in for a different ISP account.
I check multiple peoples adsense accounts.
Multiple people check MY adsense accounts.
Google stated that as long as you have permission to check anothers account, and that the owner of the account has access to check their own account (you don't change their password on them effectivly stealing their account) then there is no problem.
I would wholeheartedly endorse the advice of making sure he knows how to keep the account above suspicion in all respects - clicks from his freinds as well as the rest of the advice, and make sure he knows that you will both be banned if he screws up.
People tend to screw up. If your son so much as mentions Adsense to his mates they are going to click on his ads, either to help him out or to get him banned for a laugh. Even if none of those parties screw up, Google might.
I like to factor in other peoples screw-ups. Any plan that depends entirely on other people not being morons, is doomed.
