    What I mean is I want to put like an hour limit on YouTube so she's not glued to it all day... That section schedules enabling and disabling internet access

    Ai Protection has never offered what you want and it's probably not possible with any service due to iOS restrictions.

    Kaspersky Safe Kids https://www.kaspersky.co.uk/safe-kids works for Android and Windows but iPhones it can't do much :

    I still say Screen Time is your best option, if your kids want to use it for YouTube, or any other games etc. but limit their screen time

    Think DNSCrypt has the ability to block like that..but need to be manually edited and could be hard to set it to specific clients

    ## One or more weekly schedules can be defined here.
    ## Patterns in the name-based blocklist can optionally be followed with @schedule_name
    ## to apply the pattern 'schedule_name' only when it matches a time range of that schedule.
    ##
    ## For example, the following rule in a blacklist file:
    ## *.youtube.* @time-to-sleep
    ## would block access to YouTube only during the days, and period of the days
    ## define by the 'time-to-sleep' schedule.
    ##
    ## {after='21:00', before= '7:00'} matches 0:00-7:00 and 21:00-0:00
    ## {after= '9:00', before='18:00'} matches 9:00-18:00

    [schedules]

    # [schedules.'time-to-sleep']
    # mon = [{after='21:00', before='7:00'}]
    # tue = [{after='21:00', before='7:00'}]
    # wed = [{after='21:00', before='7:00'}]
    # thu = [{after='21:00', before='7:00'}]
    # fri = [{after='23:00', before='7:00'}]
    # sat = [{after='23:00', before='7:00'}]
    # sun = [{after='21:00', before='7:00'}]

    Like others have said Apple’s screen time will allow you to do what you want. You’ll have to get a hold of her phone though.
