Hi. My son has been caught using his phone when he should be sleeping to access the internet for social media and/or texting or whatever. The sure fire way to make sure he does not is to simply take it away. He just cannot help himself. After all, he is a teenager. I am also not going to subject myself or my wife to the headache of doing what will seem like to him, punishment. I would like to press a magic button that will disable internet access for my sons phone from 9:00pm to 5:00am Monday thru Thursday. Is there such a button?

Subscribe to Family Base for cellular data usage. For home wifi access, enforce MAC address restrictions and time restrictions on your home router.

absolutechaos, As a parent of two teenagers I can understand how important it is to put you in control. As Ann154 said, Family Base is an awesome way to make this happen. http://spr.ly/6584D19gp How does this sound?

Thanks Joel,

I searched "Family Base" and found only the Smart Family app  described but that has not sufficed.

THShelby I'm sad to learn the program is not working for you. If your son is removing the restrictions or app, there is nothing further that can be done. Short of taking away his phone.
