    What kind of software do you use to ensure that your kids doesn't open the wrong sites while surfing the net?

    Create an account for your child under Mac OS X. Enable Parental Controls so you can control what the user can and cannot do with the account. You can even restrict the websites that the child can visit to a list or with OSX's built in adult website filter

    No need to buy third party software.
