How do you control your kids computer and internet access and use.

Question

I have a home network. My computer is connected directly to my ISP - my sons computer is networked through a route and wireless Access point.

I was told by a friend there is software available that I could install on my computer and control my sons computer including - the day and time he is allowed to use his computer - it will block inappropriate use including internet porn etc.

I have been unable to find software that will allow me to do this. Do you know or can you recommend such software?

THANKS
