Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

My first question is. Are you in a LAN? or is a only PC on your home.

For specific websites you can edit the hosts file.

It is relatively easy and there are plenty of pages online to show how.

Editing the hosts file works well, more so for younger users. Once they get to double digits however they start to find their way around that. The best way is to use a router, and make sure they can't get physical access to it. Block the website in the router, and your done.
