The only way I know of: set up a separate standard or guest account for your child; and you keep your admin and your standard accounts guarded with very good passwords.

If you don`t setup a password for yourself, then he can just login as you and do whatever he wants.

You must create a password for your account to stop him.

Or just don`t let him use your PC, I wouldn`t
