Parental Controls and Logging Out

I have parental controls set up to lock my son's user account after a certain time of day. the trouble is, when he's on the computer, then leaves, and I come in later, his profile is locked but not logged out. I can't get in to his profile to log him out, of course, unless I disable the parental controls first. How can I force another user to log out from my profile?

This feature would be great. But is there a way to set up restrictions on my own account? I cannot afford to lose administrator privileges as I'm the only user of this computer and need to access system files frequently.
