Does she have their own logon account??

If so, just make it a "limited" account and password your Admin account..

you could purchase 3rd party software that will monitor the chats like

Predator guard or Net Nanny

Or do what was suggested make her a limited user and on her account uninstall the chat programs password protect the admin account, she wont be able to download anything you dont want her to.

you can even install a third party firewall and block the application from accessing the internet.

also recommend oepning IE-TOOLS-INTERNET OPTIONS- CONTENT- and activate the content advisor, this will stop your kids form viewing things on the web you dont want them to see, and with a limited user account she cant change it.
