Correct <tag> is used for DHCP options and network or host binding. DNS 
is not linked as such. If you are using OpenWrt/LEDE as your gateway, 
then you have an easier to use option. LEDE 17.01(RC) supports building 
dnsmasq instances on designated networks. So instead of HOME and GUEST 
SSID on your WiFi, you could have PARENT and CHILD SSID for example. 
Then configure dnsmasq uniquely to each.
