    I have a friend with two Macs who have two boys 11 & 8. Mike wants to be able to control the Internet to some degree. Essentially he wants it so the boys can only use the Internet when he's around to supervise.

    Is it possible to put a password on Internet sessions? The family Macs are on WiFi, so it's possible for Mike to enter in a password to get on the WiFi, but then wouldn't he have to reboot to "reset" the WiFi password?

    Anyone know of any third-party programs that would provide a solution to this.

    Thanks for any advise.

    Check out the Parental Controls preference pane in System Preferences.
