IDK it's theoretical I never tried it out.

Just curious what age did you have in mind?
Oh, the magic is limited to certain ages?

I could imagine so. Not sure.

I had in mind someone who is ~16.

God of the world, when will the pain end?

The trick is (if you're not embarrassed) you've got to one up the "friend". You have to get a SD card that's preloaded and give it to your child. (Obviously if you know for sure that they will purposely watch those things then don't.) Then tell them

חיים והחיים לפניך ובחרת בהחיים

Then only if you want you should daven that they make the right choice.

At least that's what I would do.

But this is exactly what I thought of right away

are you serious?  You try to limit the nisayon for adults how much  more so for children

Okay, so how long does it last for? Do you have a way of ensuring that the inappropriate items won't be sitting and waiting when it wears off or a moment of weakness arrives etc?

I've heard such a statement here before from others. That it's up to hashem to give a nisayon and not for us to put it on ourselves.

Go right ahead it's a safe route, most probably halachically/hashkafically the right one too.

Let's just say I don't always agree with things.

It is a great thing to go ahead and think through things, but the responsibility which goes along with that is to really think it through well and try to find all of the pitfalls in an idea and not to just take a whim and run just because it sounds nice at first. It does not seem like you did that here.

Lifetime.
I have no way of ensuring that. It's still worth it in the long run.

You're right. I didn't think it through enough to actually put it in action. I do find this idea appealing although I can't clearly articulate at the moment why.

If it works. Big if.

Fairly obvious, but spewing out ideas that were not thought through is not included in

Quite to the contrary.

Then you really didn't think through it at all. The appeal of it is very simple in that it teaches self-control. The problem is that teenagers are not likely to be able to exercise such constant self-control as you seem to be expecting even with telling them a magic sentence.

If you put the Google play store on it, it will.

No that's obvious. I don't think that is the full reason why I find it appealing. It definitely doesn't articulate it clearly.

I guess we have different views of the capabilities of young adults.

Anyone here tried Circle with Disney?

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019RC1EI8/

Good price for it, seems like it filters each device as you want but only on wifi, to filter data it needs a paid subscription.
It can also set time limits per device.
I havent used it yet.

Very interesting. Possibly a great filtering solution for all those people that gave their kids fire tablets to play games on at home.
