Block Aps Child Cannot delete

We have a Samung S7 Edge.

I have tried half a dozen parental control aps and they all require the phone to have access to data or WIFI or there are ways for the child to navigate around the restriction. I want to block (my unique password) at the phone level my childs ability to download any ap. I have taken away the WIFI but so many places offer free WIFI it is not the right answer. I have taken away the data but then some of the locator services will not work. Some aps the kid can flat out delete.

I specifically want to prevent the evil SNAPCHAT which is specifically designed to teach our children how to rebel so parents cannot monitor their activity.

Question #1

What application will let me control the phone and the activity?

Question #2

Can I block my child from having access to any and all WIFI offerings?

Samsung Marshmellow work?

I am to the point where I may purchase a flip phone but that is not the right answer either because he like to use his phone to record his music sessions for his class.

Invest in a plain and simple digital recorder?

BRANDONMCG, it's important that you have options for parental controls for your child's phone. We have new options for content control, app downloads and data access. Please review Family Base for your family needs. http://spr.ly/6584D8MNq; http://spr.ly/6588D8MNQ How does this sound?
