Phone locked but shouldn't be

It’s the holiday week and I turned off all the screentime restrictions but my daughter still cannot use her phone. Ideas why?

I had this happen. I had to upgrade my bark app on my cell from App Store. I may have had to delete the app and load it again from the App Store. Next, I deleted the kids bark app off her decide and reinstalled it. Logged in to my app, then her app. It worked. It was almost 10 days before I figured these simple steps out. My kid was not happy, but good lesson on how to keep yourself busy without an iPad! Hope this helps!
