I have thought about chattr but

I have to test it anyway.
Thank you for your email.

This is currently not possible with synaptic - you could try to use
chattr and set the "immutable" attributes on the file for those
packages. But I have no tested if that really works (if dpkg will
refuse to install/remove the package then).

Another alternative is "rapt"
( It allows you to
prevent the user from removing packages. But its commandline so
probably not the right solution for your kid.
