Guidance on implementing admin approval of new posts

A client is getting a community site, and wants the ability to approve new posts. Client is fairly computer illiterate, so to keep things as simple as possible I want to add a tab to the Forum pagetype that lists children posts and has a button by each to approve or delete. Also I will need to hack the Forum code to add an Approved field to Posts, and then only show in the templates approved posts. Does that make sense? Any guidance on how to go about adding the list of children to a tab in the CMS? I'm new to SS and haven't found anything anywhere that would show me how to do that.
