Hi,

One of the most popular around is cyberpatrol. http://www.cyberpatrol.com/

Hope this helps or at least a start.

I think that education is the best way. It doesn't matter what you do he'll still be able to find it, if not have it put in his face while he's doing something innocent.

Also, software on the computer won't stop magazines getting in the house ;-)

If he really really wants to visit those sites, there will be little you can do to stop it. Young kids are known for being able to "work around" these parental control things and access dodgy sites.

Instead, I'd say if you just randomly check what sites he's been visiting (check the browser history), and if you catch him/her, have a good "serious talk" with them. The only way you'll stop him/her visiting these sites, as someone else said, is education and trust.
