Blocking my kids' access to all internet services (including incoming and outgoing message services) on a schedule

Last Modified: 2020-05-27
What is the best way to setup firewall rules to block my kids internet access (including whatsapp, snapchat, etc.) on a schedule?

Is it better to set up rules for incoming from their ip addresses (mapped to MAC addresses) on the WAN_In, LAN_in or both?  Should I be using "floating rules?"
