Prevent users from changing LAN settings

administratordnsopendnspermissionswindows 7

I'd like to stop my kids from changing either the LAN or WAN settings on PC or Laptop.

I'm using OpenDNS and have it set to use their DNS servers, but my kids keep removing the DNS settings to access sites which I don't want them to access.

I'd like for them to otherwise have administrator settings, but not be able to change the network settings.
