Default Parental Controls on MAC

Hi everyone,

I'll just say, right up front, I know nothing about MAC OS.

One of my clients has a teenage daughter who seems to have gotten into some trouble using her laptop. She called me today asking if I can help them lock down her Macbook to keep her from using social networking sites and IM without parental approval. I found some documentation on how to set up parental controls on MAC, and I had also thought of OpenDNS and setting up filtering through that, but it seems both solutions are 'All On or All Off' and doesn't give an opportunity to allow these activities from time to time with parental password authorization.

I had also thought of creating multiple user accounts on the MAC, one with more access than the other that the parent can log them into when allowed.

My question on this would be, can you change the current account, which I am guessing is admin, to a limited account, then create a new seperate Administrator Account and second limited account?

Any help would be appreciated
