    From Mac OS 10.5, Apple built-in parental control (accessible through System Preferences). Macworld offers advice if the built-in features are inadequate: Beyond Parental Controls | Software | Macworld

    An extra step could be to use OpenDNS for content filtering (OpenDNS | Internet Navigation And Security). I use it on my network and for clients.
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!

    I've never tried Aobo software.
    I carried about the same problem before, when I wanted to know what did my young brother on my comp.
    A couple months ago I found DutyWatch. It records all typed keystrokes and I know which apps he used and websites he watched when I was out of home.

    And I am using ActyMac DutyWatch Remote for a long period and I can say it is really good application. High quality.

    my parents used a program called K9 web protection it basically controls times you can use the internet, and you can block websites that you don't want your son to come across.

    Me, myself am not a fan of key loggers...

    oh and you dont need each and every website you want blocked, blocked you just need to 'genre' for lack of a better description. there are check boxes with like 30 different 'genres'

    A little old but common topic, but still want to share what i know here. To my knowledge, the Amac family keylogger mac is not bad as my auntie has been using it for six months, and she thinks highly of it. Apart from providing rock solid protection, and it does not slow down computer.
