How to restrict access to some server folders in Windows Home Server?

I'm using Windows Home Server 2011, and the main use is as a media server. How can I make it so that some folders can't be accessed, but others can? I don't mind the kids and their guests having access to all the music, for example, but I don't need an angry mom calling me because her kid just watched a bunch of my rated M animes, so I'd like to prevent access to videos. How do I set it up to do this?
