Look for a parental control browser, McGruff is one I see recommended but I'm sure there are others. Use restrictions to lock out safari, leaving the controlled one the only browser. You'll also need to use restrictions to lock out the installation of new programs, or your son can just download an open browser and use that to access the sites you restrict him from.
There are also programs you can get that block such sites at your router level...as in it locks them out for everyone on your home network.

Have a look at Open DNS, you set your router to use their DNS servers so all traffic using your network goes through them. You can thenset your restrictions on their website. http://www.opendns.com/
Of course this only works at home on your network.
