Dealing with kids and corporate network

Specs: Windows XP
I run a small business from my home. We have a small but typical network for printers and shared files, including SBS 2003 server which handles DHCP. For this network, we use a DLink DIR-655 router as a firewall and gateway to the ISP for the company. DHCP is turned off on this router.

To keep the corporate clients info safe, we brought in a second ISP for the personal side of life, kids browsing, Facebook and so on. This "network" has a Siemans SE567 router/modem issued by the ISP. This unit handles DHCP for the one computer connected to it.

I pay for antivirus and other software for the corporate side and would like to install and manage these services on the personal computer.

Is there any way, even with a third router, to connect the personal computer to the corporate network on an internal basis only to enable the use of software applications?

Thanks for any advise.

Are the few dollars you would save on a single familiy workstation worth the risk to client data?

Being a family pc I would make a image of it and tuck it away for safe keeping.
Then I would put avast! [free] and perhaps another free malware checker on the pc and be done with it.

Once the kids mess up the pc, and they will, you just restore the image. They get to learn not to download every demo known to humankind and perhaps even learn some safe computing skills.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
