Parental Control Advanced Warning To End User affected by ScreenTime / Schedule time

It's very frustrating for the kids doing something on the computer to suddenly be kicked off the device (here being the computer), without being able to save their work in progress. This results in me having to disable the screen time for 5 minutes so they can go back and save whatever they are doing (or shutoff specific program).

One way to resolve this is to be able to specify when to show advanced warning notification to the end user that the screen time is about to end. The specified minutes can be either be from a predefined list, or can be manually entered. It would also be nice to allow me as a parent to specify a certain number of values (up to 3?). This way the kids can get something like 30 min/15min/5 min warning notifications before they are kicked off, giving them plenty of time to save/finish whatever they are doing.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
