Limiting Screen time & Gaming

  • Most videogame consoles come with built in features to help parents and carers manage their childrens access. This can be anything from the amount of time a child has access to the console (after which point it will shut off) to the age range of games they are allowed to play. Please see below links on how to activate and manage these features on the main consoles.
