To activate Parental Controls

1.
Create a new user account for your child: Open System Preferences and choose “Accounts” (click the plus sign beneath the Accounts pane.

2.
Log in as the new user, then open Safari.

3.
From the Safari menu choose “Preferences…,” then click the “Security” icon in the Preferences toolbar. Temporarily, make sure “Enable parental controls” is not selected so you can make changes to the Bookmarks Bar.

4.
Remove all items from the Bookmarks Bar, then visit the sites that you want to make available, and add them as bookmarks to the Bookmarks Bar.

5.
After adding bookmarks for acceptable sites, go back to the Security pane of Safari Preferences and select “Enable parental controls.” An “Authenticate” dialog box opens so you can enter your administrator name and password.

The web sites listed in your child's Bookmarks Bar are now available. If a child clicks a link that connects to another site outside of the approved site, the window shown on the right opens. When the “Add Web site” button is clicked, an “Authenticate” dialog box opens so you can enter an administrator name and password.
