Hey! Um, no! You have to use the internet to connect to your home computer from the office. Hence, you can't turn off your home internet if you want to be able to connect to that machine.

go here for Parental Control Software Reviews

Reviews say Safe Eyes, CyberPatrol and Net Nanny all do a good job blocking questionable websites and monitoring kids' time online

As far as I can tell from the function of Remote Desktop, you should be able to access everything on your computer at home including the shutdown option. Of course, once done, you can't turn it back on :). Best thing is just to try it. Even better, is what was suggested about installing NetNanny software.
