Well, being a teenager myself, I have to agree with Sean.  There is no 
way they can get work for school done without the internet.  If they 
dont have it at home, theyll have to go to the Library or stay in school 
at breaks/lunch/after school.

Also, some games may require the internet for registration (I have a 
feeling NFS Prostreet saves your game online, so other games might as 
well) so no internet may pose a problem there.

Also, you could just use VNC to monitor what theyre doing.  O ruse your 
router to monitor what IPs theyre accessing.

(Granted I dont know much about this, as being resident geek of the 
family, the Router is in my bedroom, with all my PCs wired up, then My 
parents, and my sister just have laptops with wireless, I controll and 
administer our netowrk and internet connection, so the only person who 
can monitor what I go on... is me!! XD)
