Keeping Kids Safe on iPhones & iPads | Set Up Screentime, Downtime, & Restrictions
We created a printable with images and a video on setting restrictions, using screen time, etc. on Apple devices right after lockdowns started happening. Here is a blog that combines both of those pieces of information: https://bridgingapps.org/keeping-kids-safe-on-iphones-ipads-set-up-screentime-downtime-restrictions/

ALERT: In creating this video I noticed that there are several copycats of this app that use similar names and even the logo. You might want to warn parents to look carefully when shopping in the app store. Also, I only use the free version and it has a lot of features, however Amy B uses the paid version (she has more driving children in her house, I only have 1 right now). I would encourage parents to use the free version for a month or so to make sure they like it, I think they will be pleasantly surprised at the amount of free features.
