    At home, get a decent router and configure to block what you don't like (options may be available on ISP provided router but likely limited). On mobile data, I'm sure the provider has some parental settings that can be called into play.

    I have family link on the kids phones and tablets.

    I would talk to him about the sites and why he accessed them and discuss why you feel it is appropriate or not appropriate.
