However, before enforcing such a feature, Facebook urges all the parents to have conversations with their children.
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.
To access this functionality now, parents will simply need to visit the Messenger Kids settings section in the main Facebook app. For example, a good use of this feature would be during the study hours or dinner time, etc. Alongside using the sleep mode, they can add and remove contacts and even delete and create accounts from the control panel. This ensures that they don't have to constantly monitor or change app controls, giving them the peace of mind for their children.

Beginning this week, parents will be able to select "trusted channels" and topics that their children can access on the app, like "Sesame Workshop" or "learning", that have been curated by people at YouTube Kids and its partners.
For more information about Messenger Kids, visit MessengerKids.com or follow the Facebook page for updates. They also cannot use the camera, or receive notifications. If a kid does try to open the app, it will let them know it's now in sleep mode and refuse access.

However, growing concerns over the impact that digital devices and social media have on children's emotional and cognitive development has led to calls for Facebook to ditch the app. You can set different times for weekdays versus weekends.
