Blocking an Internet Phone number-Kids work around to blocked numbers

Does anyone know how to block those internet site type texting sites (without blocking web access completely)? Ive blocked ppl I dont want kid talking to but he "works around this" by using various internet sites by having those ppl use a texting site thru the internet. The numbrs show up as funny strings of number unlike a phone number

Those sites are likely using data to send those messaging through. Unfortunately, SmartLimits doesn't prevent texts that are sent using data, which includes picture or video messaging, iMessaging, and some of those websites that allow you to send SMS messages.
