Facebook brings sleep mode to Messenger Kids providing more control to Parents

The new sleep mode will allow parents to set predetermined times that Messenger Kids can not be used, whether that's a blocked out time for homework, during the night, or other times decided upon by the guardian.

With sleep mode, parents can set a designated off time and each day at the designated time, the app will "go to sleep" and not be accessible to kids during those hours.
