The AT&T provided gateway does not offer parental controls.  You'll  have to find a modem that does and put it behind the AT&T gateway

When you're in your 60s & people ask you to do something, you just say "No".  No reason.  No excuse.  No explanation.  I can't wait for my 70s.  I don't think I'll even answer.   -  Jerry Seinfeld
