Wi-Fi Parent is an innovative Android™ app for parents to limit mobile usage on their children’s devices. It allows parents to schedule the time that children are allowed to access Wi-Fi, SMS for Texting, Calling, or completely disable the device to eliminate the distraction when kids are supposed to be doing homework or sleeping.

Wi-Fi Parent puts the control back in the parents’ hands, which means your family can enjoy the benefits of having children with mobile devices without worrying about interference in priorities or the arguments that come with physically restricting usage.

    Tried it. It was so easy to bypass. If my kid would be stupid enough to be blocked by this app, I wouldn't buy him a smartphone in the first place. Also, the UI design is from like 2010.
