I did implement one measure for a while that worked well enough until
they got more curious.

I determined one by one all of the binaries they needed regular access
to.  I then created /usr/kidbin and symlinked to each of them.  I then
put *only* /usr/kidbin in their path.

After a while, they got smarter and figured out if you type:


all sorts of "goodies" appear!  All you have to do is choose one, and
"interesting things" happen. :)
