Hi everyone. The latest system software update (v5.50) just recently added a new Play Time Management feature for you to keep track of playtime for your kids. This new feature is part of our revamped parental control system that offers a more flexible experience for families on PlayStation 4. We put together a guide of some of the top parental control tips you can take advantage of to make gameplay much more manageable for your little gamers.

Set Up an Account for Your Child

First, set up your kids’ account from Family Management. You can either create a new account for your child, or add an existing PSN account to the main family account. All parental control settings can be customized for each child, so restrictions like age rating levels for games can be set separately. You can also keep each family member’s data separate and allow everyone to save their own game progress and settings, and earn their own PSN trophies.

  • Go to [Settings] > [Parental Controls/Family Management].
  • Select [Family Management], you will asked to enter your PSN password again.
  • Follow onscreen instructions to add family members.
