    Heya. I need some help. I was at my for all intensive purposes adopted moms today. She isnt really blood related but rather a close frined of my otherwise small family. At any rate her son going on 14 has started to notice women. The problem is that unlike my childhood with nothing but a webTV he happens to have a PC. lately she has caught or otherwise seen his search history and he is starting to get into some online porn. He has some delicate mental shortfallings and tends to take alot of what he sees at face value. weather that be a rocket launch (mom rockets dont need gravity) to smacking women. Of course she has done her best with perental controls but not being that computer savvy he is starting to find various ways around them. So the idea occured to me that i can blacklist sites using the router itself. regardless of what he can manage to cirumvent. I suppose i could do a good job working on the PC itself but she lives in the city quite aways away and i dont have time to modify a bunch of settings via VNC or in person. So I was wondering if any of you parents or otherwise security conscious people knew were i could get a list of these sites. Im sure their are lists provided on parenting sites and the like but i really dont know were to begin looking. and word filters will only get me so far.

    thanks in advance.

    If these don't work out another good resource to look into would be xxxchurch.com I'm not sure if they've got DNS stuff up and running, but their filter is top notch and can run in ghost most if I remember correctly.
