Time limits/parental controls

Please create a feature to automatically power off the TV/ disable for a time period. I would like to be able to automatically turn off at 9 pm and make the tv inaccessible until 6 am. I know there is a sleep timer but that’s not what I’m looking for. More like tablet/cell phone parental controls where the device can be disabled until a certain time. 

Similarly, being able to block certain apps from a device without removing it from all of the devices would be nice. My kids aren’t allowed YouTube and there is no YouTube kids on Roku. But if I download it on my tv, it is on all of the TVs in the house. We have 6 Roku TVs.
