Your users should not give their families access to company resources as that raises both security and legal problems. This is a social problem, which shouldn't be addressed by technical measures alone.
Suggest to your management to write up a policy that prohibits private use of corporate resources and have the users sign it. Make clear to your users that repeated violation of said policy will lead to unemployment (also explain to them why they should not allow their families to use company resources). Monitor successful logons to detect policy violations.
