Part 3. Final Thoughts


Whatever you do, the most important thing is to make sure your child is safe. Mobile phones take up too much energy and time for parents and children. They all bow their heads and play with mobile phones, unwilling to communicate. If parents can put down their mobile phones first and drive their children to participate in outdoor activities, I believe that children are also very happy. If you're really worried, you can use SpyX, a monitoring software program that monitors everything on your child's phone to make sure you know what's going on.




Q1. Does iPhone have child mode?

That inevitable sequence can be stopped in its tracks thanks to Guided Access, a great new feature brought to iOS in 6.0 that basically functions as Kid Mode, whereby any iOS device can be locked into an application with the hardware buttons disabled.


Q2. Can I limit who my child can text on iPhone?

If you haven't already turned on Screen Time, tap Turn On Screen Time, tap Continue, then tap This is My Child's iPhone. Tap Communication Limits, then do any of the following: Limit communication at any time: Tap During Screen Time, then select Contacts Only, Contacts & Groups with at Least One Contact, or Everyone.

When you create a Google Account for your child using Family Link, you can set screen time limits on their Android device or Chromebook. That way, you can lock your child's Android device or Chromebook at bedtime, after they've used it for a certain amount of time, or when you think they need a break.


Q5. How can I turn off my child's phone at night?

Download the Family Link for Children & Teens on your kid's phone (available for Android only). On your phone, create a family manager account. Once your kid's profile is set up, select Bedtime and set the span of time your kid can't use their phone.
