Complication is that such a program would need to run on the router/gateway/wireless/firewall device.

depending on the make/model of your router you can set up parental controls by MAC address, I do this with my kids in order that they aren't on their devices when getting ready for schools and at bed time.

When they are naughty they off time is easily extended and when they are good things return to normal.
