if you use windows xp, i think the easy and cheap way to do it is just to change the History folder's permissions, only adminsitrator (parents) have full control, the child has only WRITE and MODIFY permissions. this makes the History folder acts like a hole to the children, you can drop something into it but you can not get something from it.

hope it helps,
