After adding a child to your Family Sharing group, you can customize your parental controls.

This is also possible when setting up a device – like an iPhone – for a child.

This works across apps, books, TV shows, and movies.

You can also set time limits for specific apps.

There is an option to restrict who your child can communicate with.

And you can set it up to personally approve any child’s purchase requests — or even download something for free.
