Call customer service at 1-800-922-0204 from a landline or *611 from your phone and request they add a hotspot block to those lines on your account. You might be able to add it yourself through your MyVerizon account online.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

According to https://community.verizon.com/t5/Apple-General/How-to-Disable-hotspot-on-a-child-s-iphone/m-p/110985... from a Verizon staff member, this isn't possible. 🙁
