Only if Dad has already visited those pr0n sites to download the images

Using Squid, you can have time based access control lists 

However, to make use of those, you'll have to block of at least port 80 
at the firewall, so people can't bypass the proxy server.  This will 
break some applications that don't know how to use a proxy.
