Are you talking only software installed on the local workstation, or a
network / server based solution? If the latter is an option, Dansguardian
works pretty well for dynamic content based filtering (as opposed to a list
of known "bad" sites). You can even get super-strict and deny everything
that's not on a white list of allowed sites. The good thing about doing it
this way (network/server based) is you can configure it as a transparent
proxy and configure your network to make sure that all web traffic goes
through it or it doesn't get out at all.
Some of those kids can be pretty tricky little hackers :-) which is a good
thing in a way, but with stuff like this it can keep you on your toes making
sure you've got something they can't get around.
