This question already has an answer here:

I want to block all porn sites regardless of language or location. How can I do this?

I changed my /etc/hosts to do stuff like:

$ cat /etc/hosts|tail
127.0.0.1   xxx.com
127.0.0.1   badharampictures.net

But is there anything else I can do?

One easy and great way of doing it is going straight to the source and use DNS filtering for that purpose.

https://www.opendns.com/home-internet-security/parental-controls/opendns-home/

Setup an account, make the changes in your router to use the DNS servers from OpenDNS, activate parental filtering and no matter what OS your kids are using that obtain an IP via the router will be blocked from accessing issue sites.

Of course if your kids are smart enough and know how to spoof that it will be easy for them to bypass it, that again, as said before, you wont be able to protect your children all the time from all the dangers the internet presents.
