Hi, I too have the same problem. After installing 10.8.2 in my MacBook, my parental controls keeps crashing and also my children's account cannot access any website, even after I have opened the website at the prompt that request the main administrator authorisation.

This really needs to get fixed. This is not a trivial problem.

Apple... Please release a fix soon.

It's not only keep crashing, that still can be fixed somehow. The real issue here is even though it is kind of working again, it constantly draws 40%-50% of CPU time, making the computer *very* slow (I'm on a MBP 2009).
Now my only choice is to disable it until Apple got a fix on this whole Parental Control not working thing on 10.8.2.

I wrote a blog post about this after coming across it in 10.8.3 (still not fixed).
In 10.8.3 I turned off PCs for affected user from the User Pref Pane. Then I could open PC pref pane and close it, then I could reenable. But then I ran into the https problem (see blog post).

I have the same problem with 10.8.3 now. I use parental controls for my children and this needs to be fixed. The process keeps on crashing and it is making the Macintosh unusable for the kids.

Same problem with 10.8.4. Apple, what's up? Fix this already.

And same problem with 10.8.5 apparently. Any solutions?

Actually, I just repaired permissions and that seemed to work.
