PowerShell? Windows Server? TechNet? Developer? Administrator?

Windows Server
I am a consumer, not IT trying to survive in Win 10. I have multiple computers in my home. Both running W10 (1 home & 1 pro version) shared w fam. Internet ISP Xfinity. I think I have to have Win Server because W10 shares & syncs to everything (already terrified) - I'm no expert but have to maintain both & I am very confused. Some stuff we share some I want to keep private. To do so, does that make me a Sys Adm? Do I need a domain, or cloud - which I think means Enterprise???---but I don't connect to a bus? So does that make me a domain controller --oh god! What do I need to keep my data safe, share some programs features & lock down others from my click happy grandchildren (& me without an IT background?) Even my ISP 'piggy backs' my Wi-Fi signal as open source, and app providers PRETEND that we ave a choice over what we share? What do I have to have, what role do I play, & what level of Win 10 automation provides the flexibility to share & still keep my system, computers, & data safe without spending 24/7 monitoring in a W10 environment? I feel like Windows 10 has thrown me in over my head & when I try to figure things out I end up at sites like this -- I'm no IT pro & would welcome any advice from this community & hopefully in terms that I can understand.

Software/Hardware used:
W10, MS Office-Home, Web Browsing, Security, safety, social networking, gaming, media streaming, navigation, mobile, wifi, ethernet, on-line shopping/banking, email, productivity apps, printer sharing

    What have you written, this is somehow confusing. Not so cleared here or sorry for not understanding. Only focusing on "monitoring in a W10 environment", there are so many tools/software that can help to keep monitoring your system's behavior. Or you can use event viewer (a built-in feature for same purpose) to check the same. You have multiple computers, but how many are there and how did they connect each other? What OS is there or mixed OSs are there.

    You should be able to protect your data based on your login. Do your grandkids use the same sign in as you? What are you looking to prevent them having access to? If it's websites there are ways to do that by blocking IP's and domains. Xfinity has tools to do this. IF you are looking to protect personal data, you can protect the folder(s) this data is stored in form access other than who's log in credentials you allow.. Provide some more specific details and we can try and guide you in the right direction.
