Hi there any tips on good apps for monitoring and limiting screen time on your children’s phones? Anyone used screen limit? Looks good but asks you to install mobile device management so they can access your child’s phone to do the necessary blocking etc? Is this necessary for all these apps? (My son has an iPhone but unfortunately it’s too old an iPhone for the new IOS inbuilt monitoring) many thanks

Haven't tried this but this is also a great idea to limit the kids on their gadgets.

If it is mainly Internet Access he is using, you can also use your wireless broadband router to turn off Internet Access for specific devices on a timer e.g. 8pm - 6am.
Most ISP routers have a control panel you can access to set it up.
Of course if you are paying for a data contract for the phone the above would be pointless as they can just use their data
