Hello, padestefano. Help is here to ensure you are in the know for the Verizon Smart Family feature. Having the ability to restrict times of the day or night for calls and texting is great for your loved one but we never want this person to miss out on any important text messages. As the parent, you will receive a notification that your child has received a text message. The child may have the ability to receive but they will not be able to respond to until the time restriction is lifted. I do want to ensure I am helping in every way I can. Are you currently experiencing any issues with the Smart Family feature?
Please let me know if this helps and see our FAQs for the Verizon Smart Family for additional information. http://spr.ly/6588E61Me
