Young people find it difficult to unplug at the best of times, but it’s even harder when your friends are sending you messages. With bedtime, school time and lights out settings, you can decide to block their devices at specific times.

For years experts have warned that gadgets just before bed can result in poor quality of sleep for adults and especially children. With more and more schools allowing children to bring devices in, it’s important to find a way to nurture sleeping and learning when devices are increasingly commonplace.
