"Sleep mode" feature live within a parent's main Facebook app but for now though only one parent will have the access to control this feature inside Facebook.
Parents have told us that they like how Messenger Kids allows them to fully control the contact list and check in on their child's messaging as they're learning to navigate the digital world. This ensures that they don't have to constantly monitor or change app controls, giving them the peace of mind for their children. Under the "app controls" header, the Sleep Mode menu will appear. You will be allowed to create different settings for weekdays and weekends. But while a parent will be able to manually put the app to "sleep mode" on other times within a day, they will not be able to schedule the app to nap more than once in a day. When you're setting boundaries around the use of technology, it may be helpful to have a conversation with your child to make sure you have a mutual understanding of the ground rules.
Facebook has always remained in question to providing donations or some sort of financial assistance to some of the advisors who have been supportive towards its Messenger Kids app. When the app is in Sleep Mode, kids can not send or receive messages or video calls, play with the creative camera or receive notifications.
