Well if you have a server/domain setup and it runs your DNS...you could just log that. You can also try sniffing the connection going to the internet and trap all of DNS lookups that go out.

You can also check the cookies/browser history (probably already thought of that).

The keylogger is also an idea if you don't have a router or server capable of the above.

My buddy's router keeps a log of recent activity, you can watch what's going on in there.. gives full url's and everything. Mine doesn't do this though.

Children should not play with such things.

Open DNS provides some stats, you could setup a proxy server/firewall in linux and log everything, or there are some business solutions that are really beyond the needs of a home user.

Make more sense to ask them.

Otherwise, if you are a parent and those are your kids, use parental control on their computer instead of "Dirty" spying.

He's not the parent, he's the child.

Use OpenDNS on your router to block things that you don't want.
