Default Is it possible...?

Not that I am the meanest parent on earth, but...

I am trying to limit my two kid's online time. They both have laptops with built in wireless. Problem for me is when I turn off my wireless, there are still three unsecured neighborhood wireless networks available.

Is there a way to establish my network as the only network they can access and block these other signals from being "seen" or accessed?

As you can tell by my handle, I am not too familiar with networking and firewalls and such, so please be kind if the answer is an obvious one...

Thanks in advance for any and all advice, insight, and direction.

Some routers have a section where you can set up times for when users are allowed to access the internet. Now I did say some routers because I don't know for sure if your router has it or not.
