  •  and this is a major problem. (5+ / 0-)

    if kids were deprived of their "screens," they would be forced into curiosity.

    my husband and I restrict our daughter's cell phone use (she's 13). she doesn't get it on the nights before tests, and she can't have it if her homework isn't done, nor can she have it for more than 15 minutes a night if she has a C or lower.

    it's tough, and it annoys the crap out of her, but hey, that's parenting for you. sad thing is, we're apparently the only parents that place restrictions on phone usage. her friends have their phones irrespective of grades.
