To access this functionality now, parents will simply need to visit the Messenger Kids settings section in the main Facebook app. The mode is controlled from the Parent Control centre in the parent's Facebook account and the "off times" can be changed at any time. Now, the Messenger Kids has received a new feature called Sleep Mode. Even if the kid tries to open the app while it in "sleep mode", a message will pop up telling him/her to come back later.

Facebook has always remained in question to providing donations or some sort of financial assistance to some of the advisors who have been supportive towards its Messenger Kids app. Kids love the recommended videos in the app-and parents have told us they are also interested in more ways to personalize the app for their specific style.

Then, you can set the times that you want your child to not have access to the device. By adding new features to this Children app, the giant is trying to make it more efficient for the existing users of the app.
