    Family Safety limits are not working

    My Family Safety time limits are not working for one of my children, the other child's limits work just fine. I have tried all of the suggestions I could find in the community; account is verified, all updates done, I have even tried deleting the account
    from the family and then adding it back(that worked for a couple days). How can I resolve this issue?

    Thanks.
