Why not have the same features for text restrictions as for voice restrictions????

Since Sprint does not offer "Sprint Mobile Controls" for iphone 4s? Why don't they offer the same features they do for text messages for voice calls. I want to block my teenager on days she may be "grounded/on restriction" from calling or texting her friends, but I do want to her to have the ability to text or call myself and her dad or any other emergency contact I set. Why will Sprint only allow text to function that way? It doesn't make sense. If I want to block her friends I have to block everyone one on her contact. Being this is a teenager we are talking about she has more than 50 contacts. This is ridiculous, especially since the Mobile Controls is only offered to Android phones, to top it off.
