    Kids are curious. Have you tried actually talking to him? Trying to block a teen from looking is pretty hard these days. Hell you can google most those terms and just tap images to see them.

    Use OpenDNS, that will block the sites and type of sites of your choosing at the DNS level. This prevents any sort of work arounds for any computer on your network.

    yeah well , i never going to talk about disturbing porn with my kid. i know is wrong and thats it. and yes i know is hard to prevent! google rules about porn are inexistent.


    yes, is this that I'm using right now. lets hope , one day... internet will be without porn. and will force people have real relation with other peoples in real life.

    This is a certificate error as Facebook uses SSL.
    Depending on how you have configured your blocked sites or 'never block' settings you may need to add additional Facebook domains to your list.

    Off the top of my head you'd need to allow:


    I'm afraid I don't have an openness network to test with, but you could request some clarification from their support team to help solve this!

    You need to take away his admin rights. Set yourself up as Admin, and make his account a standard account, and block that sort of stuff that way. Additionally, you can put time limits on how long he's on the mac.

    Alternatively, you can always take it away from him.

    Or you can act like a grown man and discuss those things with your son, no matter how sure you are about it being "bad and that's it".

    Between the coasts
    Porn existed long before the Internet (long before), so even if we could wave a wand and make all electronically-delivered porn disappear, it'll find other routes. it's not likely to make much change in the way humans interact. "I have porn, so I don't need to mess with real relationships" is not a comment I've heard much in my lifetime. If anything, active interest in porn means an active desire for the real thing.

    And let's face it, if a 15-year-old replaces web surfing with human relationships... you'll still have to be concerned about what he's doing, and with whom. And it won't be as easy as buying a piece of software.

    Where is the computer? Can you see the screen when he is using it? Too much privacy is an issue if this activity is a problem.

    Add in a new user (you) with a new password. Change his account to standard or create a new user under parental controls.

    Get ahead of the curve and talk to your son.
    Might be awkward but that's the right thing to do, both for you and for him...

    Definitely the most sound answer. If you need to have control over the system, you need to separate the administrator privileges from his account.

    I am not sure I would talk to him if I were you... when I was 15, had my parents tried to broach a topic like that, I would definitely shut down. Perhaps a therapist would be advisable. Those sorts of outlets are often indicative of other deeper issues, and will surely fester if ignored.

    Hope it works out, whatever you do.

    I think just a threat of the awkwardness of such a talk would scare most teenagers off.
    I have doubts about DNS blocking, it is too easy to circumvent for anyone who isn't a complete computer moron.
    Give him only access to some standard pon site like eponer. Insert the 'r'.
    A grilfriend would be a solution, makes the internet suddenly much less interesting. No idea out of which hat you can pull one though.
    Don't worry too much. My time being young was too long ago for what is on the internet today but when we were 12-13 picture sites were a thing and we clicked on the weirdest stuff we could find and there already was quite a bit. I guess it was almost a quarter of the boys who find it more interesting than off putting. All my class mates turned out quite normal to my knowledge. I don't know why but I assure you it isn't rare. Most parents just don't know.

    Talk about absolving your parental responsibility. You have to sit him down for a chat about it. I can assure you however embarrassed you might be about it he will be more so.

    As you have already seen no matter what steps you take on your computer he will always find a way around it, be it on his or a friend's Internet enabled phone. So the only solution is to step up to the plate and discuss the issue.

    You know, that kinda stuff is pretty hard to accidentally stumble on. If they'd be viewing that sort of stuff, you've got a much larger problem on your hands than the fact your 15 year old kid watches Internet porn.
