Once you set up the Parental Controls on a Mac, you can configure the controls from any other Mac on the same network. This comes in handy when you want to remove computer privileges from a child (or an adult) sent to their room. You don’t need access to the computer to do it — you just need a bit of preparation beforehand.

Over at Mac Observer, they provide complete instructions on setting up parental controls and managing them from another system. Hit the link to check it out.
