I think 10.4 has parental control already?

anyway, if your son is using an admin level account, and he knows some computer setting, I don't think there are anything you can fully control...

Agreed. You need to create a new Admin account for yourself, then in System Preferences>Accounts remove admin privileges from your son's account, and set up Parental Controls. It's far from bullet proof for a computer savvy kid though ;)

well, admin acc has the privilege to delete whatever you installed.
SafeEyes requires a code to be able to uninstall it though. This is a code that changes constantly and you have to login to the SafeEyes website (as the one controlling the account, the parent) to get the code ;)

You could set yourself as a root user, that way you'd have more control over the computer than your son - as long as you keep the root password safe, you'll always be the most powerful user.
