With physical access to the machine, this isn't a problem. Simply open the box
and remove the CMOS battery for a number of minutes so the motherboard resets
to factory defaults.

On most motherboards there is also a jumper you can short circuit to reset to
factory defaults.

You could use encrypted partitions, but the kids could still surf while
running the live CD, or something else, like knoppix.
