Have you looked at subscribing to the Smart Family feature and using its options to restrict access on your child's phone? 

 

Otherwise, you should consider switching the child's line to a basic phone. 

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

Don't give your kid a smartphone if you don't want them to have smartphone features.

Hello beckyburge! We know it's important to be able to manage their phone, and we have great news. We have a service called Smart Family, which does allow you to block apps, Data, Wi-Fi, and includes other features like live location of his device. Here is a link with more information: https://www.verizon.com/solutions-and-services/verizon-smart-family/ We hope this information helps.
