My son has an iMac running Leopard. Some of his friends have given him some questionable sites to "check out." Is there a way to prevent him from accessing certain sites on the Internet? TIA.

Go into the control panel, then parental controls. You need to make sure that he has his own distinct username, and that it's not an 'administrator' of the mac. You can then log on as a user that is an administrator of the mac and select parental control settings for your sons username.

One note: Parents usually lose at this game. Open communication is usually the best method.
