Family internet protection software

Does anyone have any recommendations for protection software for the internet, to guard young children from accessing the wrong sites. Preferrably some which configure themselves and are known to reliably block the wrong sites, without having to manually key in web addresses.

I use Zone Alarm security suite and my grandchildren use my PC, I have tried accessesing known adult sites and Zone Alarm forbids such sites as a default setting.

I have recently finished testing Trend 2006 and this does this but also look at NetNanny

How young is Young?

Most of the over 12's that I know can run rings around most of the restriction systems.

The only system that works, that I know of, is to have the PC in the living room.
