How can I restrict the ability of a child in my household from downloading the Netgear Genie and turning off parental controls?

    "my teenage children are able to download the Genie on thei Macs and turn off parental controls without having the password to parental controls"

    Really? This would be inacceptable.  Raise it with Netgear then.

    For the time being you could block updates1.netgear.com and itunes.apple.com were Genie is hosted, uninstall it from their Macs and make their user accounts regular users, not admins, as should be anyway.

    I agree with rotblitz. And if the doesn't work...

    If they are going to break YOUR rules. Simply remove the router from the system at your desired times until they realize YOU are the parent.
