When it comes to internet, parents can install filtering software that can stop sites like porn, drugs, torrents etc. But when you start monitoring chat, it really makes teenagers angry. So I would suggest stop keeping an eye on his chats and talk to him.

In regards to the remote monitoring of the Internet cafes computers, I don't see that being feasible or permitted by the owners. They would have no way of knowing which machine or what time frame your son is there
