    DNS services provide this for free. Keeping up with the infinite list is too resource intensive to maintain in a text file. – schroeder Jul 23 '14 at 14:49
  • Honestly, these days, when somebody wants to see something on the Internet, there are always ways to do it. Initiating an honest parental and two-sided discussion with your children is far more effective. That works if they're not too young. However, if they're too young for this discussion, they're probably too young to be left online alone. – Adi Jul 23 '14 at 14:59

    Trying to block [all things of categories x,y,z,...] on the Internet is, for all practical purposes, impossible with blacklisting. If you really want to restrict your child's view of the Internet, you should use whitelisting (permitting traffic only to select approved sites/services). However, this quickly becomes a management overhead nightmare as they grow older and have legitimate educational and developmental needs to broaden their view of the Internet. Besides, they'll just end up browsing whatever you don't want them to see on their phone anyway. – Iszi Jul 23 '14 at 16:19

OpenDNS is a DNS service provider that will likely be able to help you with this. There is a free version that will be able to perform the parental controls that you require.

This provides a list of known websites that it will automatically block for all devices. You would configure it by adding it as the DNS provider from the router level. Although this isn't 100% effective as a user can set a static DNS at the device level and would be able to visit those websites.

The only 100% fool proof way of performing this is to install a web proxy appliance at the border of your house network and you would then be able to block the traffic.

Below is a blurb from there website, which I am not affiliated with nor do I work with them (or use them).
