    Hello, I am new at this family sharing so I have few questions.

    I register my kid as family member as an adult because I did not how to turn off option that I have to approve every app store download.
    But, I want to have control for his time screen. Now I can not do that as he is registered as an adult.

    Question: is there a way to turn off app store approval for CHILD?

    How can I turn on screen control for my kid since he is registered as an adult? I tried to change his profile but it is not working.

    Also, if you want to limit your child's screen time, iMore's article on Parental Controls may also be helpful! Click here to see the article.

    Thanx for the effort but it didnt work.

    It seems that my kid can not be added as “child” with the same apple ID because he is now added as “adult”. Even when I remove him from the family sharing.

    Well, I'm not sure what to suggest next. Perhaps using your router to limit his internet usage is an option?

    Did you try changing the age of the child in their account?
