Is it a linux machine and you dont want your kids to be in some specific site,say facebook.com…well then you can put a list of those sites in the /etc/hosts file and add the following into it.

127.0.0.1        www.facebook.com

127.0.0.1        www.anysite.com

Yes its not a big deal but that would come handy for home use.
