Suggestions for setting up library for children.

Right now I have my DVD library on iTunes and they are all classified under their appropriate category.

My 5yr old can navigate the ATV2 better than some adults I know, so now I start thinking about locking this thing down.

What are you suggestions for going about this.

I thought about changing all the movie categories to Kids and Adults. Of course adult would be a mess.

Do I need to setup parental restrictions based on movie rating and use MetaX or something to change all the movie ratings?

I'd say from looking at who views the older's 90% my kids...watching a movie during breakfast/before bed etc.

Usually, it's things like pixar flicks etc, but he's taken an interest in batman etc. I'm ok with some films, but others I wouldn't want him watching without me there to fast forward/skip.

Our "adult" use is mainly renting newer movies with occasionally revisiting an older movie.

*...what I was going to suggest is overkill.
One of everything. Don't forget the fries.
