I want to limit time my kids spend on the internet.
The way I am doing it is to make varying, seperate ipf.rules files and
install them from cron at the appropriate time.
Problem is, if I make a change to one file, I generally have to update all
the others accordingly.

Is there a better way? I have read man ipf but didnt come out with any

I would use pf and have something like this:

block out all from <kids> to any

pfctl -t kids -T add kids.ip.to.block
pfctl -t kids -T del kids.ip.to.allow

You can also keep the IPs in a flat file and just tell pf to re-read
the file (or read a different file) to update the table.

I love pf.

Perfection is just a word I use occasionally with mustard.
