In the US most ISPs have parental tools that filter use those
if you have them in the UK.

Some home network boxes have tools.

The best strategy is to block the entire family including yourself.
Squid or another proxy tool is the foundation of more filters.

However children are clever.  Nothing will keep them out when they want in.
