Question about home wireless router setup.

I have a desk top in the kitchen and my kid has a laptop. Is there any way I can see what is going on on the laptop via the desktop? I don’t really feel a need to spy on her but was just wondering if such a thing is possible.

I had this thought yesterday as Verizon was running my PC remotely to do some tech support.

There are quite a few tools to do this. VNC is one I use regualrly.
