Wireless or Network Cable?

The house is being renovated so we have the opportunity of installing network cables but is this best to suit our future needs which are:
1) to link 3 or 4 PC’s in the house and outbuilding.
2) to limit access to the internet from the kid’s PC’s.
3) to maintain security.
We are currently using Windows XP and have broadband via a BT landline.

In addition what about HiFi wiring. Is the future wireless here as well for both music / radio from either a PC or the HiFi unit.

Easier to limit use and more secure on cable but wireless is the way to go for versatility and convenience.
