    Now we will tap on the first option, "Monday-Friday"
    .
    What we can do in this section is set time limits to limit the amount of time our child has access to this application. There are two different sections, "Monday-Friday", and "Saturday-Sunday", allowing us to set different time limits. This is because during the week children often have school and are busy with homework, but on the weekend they are free and have more personal time and we may want to allow them to have more time to use this application.

    Choose a specific time limit to set by tapping on it once
    .
    In this example, it is set to "Unlimited", and we can see that because of the blue circle on the right. We will change it to "1 hour". The options range from 0 minutes to four hours, and also include unlimited.
