    I'm not sure of any good apps. But I must commend you on locking the phone down. More parents should be as pro active as you!!!!

    You can try my Power Tools app

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...oft.powertools

    You need to lock all the apps and only leave phone and sms app. If you have a lot of apps then you will have to manually lock each app. I can make the change to select all apps.

    Any app you use, make sure to lock everything takes you to the setting, because it's possible to disable the app and make everything back unlocked

    Wait... there's no built-in parental controls on Android ?

    sort of.

    It depends on the version of android (newer = better controls), it is also almost always app driven (not baked into the OS).
    On the priv the Profile function will cover much of what you're after, after that the Google play store settings + apps like the one I suggested above cover it even more. and Google has released special youtube apps for the really young kids.
