    My wife and I recently gave our son an iPhone, and as part of the discussion with him, we set some time limits for Games and YouTube/Twitch using ScreenTime.

    That works fine for the apps and websites, but he's figured out that by messaging links to the YouTube videos, he can watch the videos later in messages and it doesn't count towards the time limits. We've discussed this with him, but I'd like to prevent this behavior in the future as well. (Trust but verify).

    Has anyone encountered this before? The only way I can see around that is limiting his time in Messages.

    Bit of an unhelpful reply, don’t you think?

    Yeah but you should pay attention to this. The more you control the worse it gets
