XP Pro admin question

I am trying to set up an account for one of my girls while I am away so that she can use the computer.

I set her up with limited access and I was trying to make a list of approved sites she can visit. When I am logged on as her and after I did I clicked apply to the approved sites it tells me I have to be the admin to do so. I have my account set up as well, and I am the admin.

Do I need to be logged in as myself to do this? I was going to try that but it looks like I would be setting those sites for myself.

Try changing her to have admin rights, apply the approved sites, then go back and change her to back to limited.
