Battery Monitor will show that.
It has the ability to show it as a widget as well as in-app. It's also free (with ads)
It's pretty simple to use. I only used it for a short while but it does what you need.
The feature to show charging rate is a free feature.

One of most important thing is also to minimize wear of your battery which rises with battery age and way how it is used. You cannot stop aging of the battery, but you can know that based on how the battery works, its wear increases faster if you keep it always charged at 100%.
If you are using the laptop connected to AC all the day, you can switch charger ...

CurrentWidget also provides the charging information as a widget, and is also free.
CurrentWidget can also stay in your notifications bar to provide information, as well as provide alerts when the phone is using above a certain amount of power which I liked. Didn't really have any cons about them when I was using them.

Set screen brightness to lowest value.
Turn off WiFi if you don't use it.
Disconnect any USB device that you are not using.
Open any application, use it, do what you want to do then close it, do no minimize.
Check your metro ui apps to see if you left them running in background.

The Tesla Model S app does exactly this. It shows battery charging rate for your car rather than your phone, though, which might not be exactly what you wanted.
Edit: the app is free, but the car is not...
It is not possible because the current legacy hardware architecture does not support this function. So unless you have a lenovo or ASUS laptop with a battery firmware which supports this, software-level control of charging/discharging cannot be achieved.
However, there are two ways of doing so at hardware-level:
open the laptop, cut off the battery's power ...
Core Temp might be the program you are looking for. It offers trayicons where you can see the temperature, clock speed, an overheat protection which warns you and is able to shutdown Windows or close programs automatically. It also has a Windows sidebar widget, but as far as I know Windows 8 doesn't support the sidebar anymore. I don't know if it has battery ...
Such a software is always tailored to specific hardware so go to Support page of your laptop manufacturer and check available software drivers there. Some time ago I posted similar answer.
Please note that the software might not have ability to configure your own charging threshold.

Check out MacroDroid. It's free and has a ton of options for custom macros. I have looked at the others and this is hands down the most user friendly available. You can use it for free (up to 5 macros) or opt for the paid version for unlimited and more complex macros. I use it daily for all kinds of things like: raising/lowering my screen brightness based on ...
I've recently started using AccuBattery. It gives an indication of battery wear by estimating the current capacity and comparing it to the design capacity (user input). This is basically your main requirement. Below is a screenshot from my phone:
It also has other useful monitoring and optimization features for improving battery heath and ...

Select "Configure Sensors" (gear icon in lower right of sensors window) and navigate to the "System Tray" tab.
Scroll down until you find your battery. Underneath the battery should be ...
As pointed out in my comments, whether you're "stationary" or "moving" is best determined via ACTIVITY_RECOGNITION – as it might prove tricky doing so on any location provider (which might keep you "slightly jumping around" even while sitting perfectly still, due to inaccuracies: WiFi signals varying strength, clouds covering satellites, and the like).
Simply use Tasker
Install it on your kids phone and make a simple profile to do what you need.
Or a better way would be to use

With these two apps you can make very very light weight app really very easily on your android phone.
And install the app you made to your kids ...
