YouTube Introduces More Parental Controls For YouTube Kids

The new sleep mode will allow parents to set predetermined times that Messenger Kids can not be used, whether that's a blocked out time for homework, during the night, or other times decided upon by the guardian. Sleep mode offers the same to the parents, where the set off times will make the app inaccessible to kids for the respective time period.

If you're a parent who has trouble getting their kids to sleep at night or keeping them focused on their homework due to constant device use, Facebook might have a solution to your woes.

When the Messenger Kids app is in Sleep Mode, kids will be unable to send or receive messages or video calls. If a kid does try to open the app, it will let them know it's now in sleep mode and refuse access. Parents can access all of their controls from the Messenger Kids controls in the main Facebook app. Still, some parents found disturbing videos were making it into the app and were viewable because they were not caught by the human curators. Parents can change the "off times" whenever they want.
