Yes, but if you want to perform "parental monitoring", then why not use the router's built-in security mechanisms?

The router should have a security tab, and that has the option to block certain URL's. Below is a link to the router's manual:

Page 3-22 (in section 3.3.5) describes how to block (i.e., Blacklist) certain URL's.
