Your Linksys router is designed for basic home and small business use.  It it not designed to be a web filter.    The hardware used in a good (not great) web filter is about as powerful as your PC.  You cannot expect the same performance from a $100 router.
Rather than trying to use the router to do this job, you should use parental control software installed on the children's computers, such as "Safe Eyes 5.0", which won an Editor's Choice award from PC magazine.
