    Well you can use a built in iOS feature called Guided Access, OR if you want something more robust and full feature just search the App Store for Parental Controls. I found a plethora of apps! Anyways here is a tutorial on using Guided Access...

    Guided Access doesn't work for Safari as a third-person control. You can set a time limit as a user for a single use, but not as a persistent setting. When you use GA to set a timer for Safari, it won't let you leave the app until the timer runs out or you manually exit. This works fine if you want your kid to expressly ask you let them surf each time, but not if you simply want to limit their usage to, say, an hour a day permanently. Is there some way to set up a timer that allows a parent to consistently and passively limit internet time?

    Ah ha! Just found out why it works this way - it's a feature, not a bug. GA is NOT a parental control tool. It is intended as a focusing tool to keep you in an app (presumably for work or getting something accomplished) and limit your functionality to whatever will keep you on task.
