Sure you can't, I'd suggest installing squidguard/dansguard and
configure it probably to protect you children. In addition you
could run SA (SpamAssassin) on your mail server and explain it to
your kids, that tagged mails are probably spam, or drop them
directly on the server, if you are really sure SA is working
However the actions you plan on sound like you would in addition
shake down their room(s) on a regular base, sorry but I won't
