I want to get an app that will let me cut-off the wifi from my phone. Owlboy crawled in bed with me at 4:00 a.m. wanting to watch Liv & Maddie on his tablet. I don't have to fight him to go to bed. I have to fight him to not go to bed early. I don't know how many times I've said. "It's only seven; you can't go to sleep yet!" He made it all the way to 8:20 last night so I thought I was safe.


One option is a Circle. You can set times kids/devices can access the wifi, even what they can/can't access. Even pause the internet for people/devices.

So, when the 14yr old highly obsessed with video games exchange student needs to work on homework (and only homework) I can filter his access to only Google classroom and educational sites. Or say, no youtube, but you can go to Pandora.

So for 4am watching parties - you can say the internet doesn't work at 4am. Because you set a bedtime on his devices, and they don't turn back on until 9am on Saturdays.

Hope that helps!
