Will anybody who has experience using parental controls for Mac OS recommend a favorite, or have suggestions/advice. I have used Net Nanny for Mac, but it interferes with Finder so much I would like to know of a less invasive software. I know this is a touchy area for a lot of people, but try and be as objective as possible.

Thanks

If the issue is internet content, you might consider BumperCar2 from Freeverse. It's a $30 browser based on OmniWeb with content filters, profanity filters, time limiting, and age-appropriate site ratings. Move Safari into your home Applications folder, and keep BumperCar2 in the main Applications folder. If Safari is only available in your profile, your kids can't access it for unfiltered internet. And the filter only applies to the browser, not the entire system.

I suggest you discuss that with your mother. Obviously she has designated herself as administrator for good reason.
