Phone usage by my daughter- How to reduce it without causing world-war 3 !
Although I have tried (reasonably) to speak to my daughter about the amount of time that she spends on the phone to her friends talking/texting/WhatsApp/Snapchat/Instagram etc I feel that I am fighting a losing battle in trying to get it off har after what I feel is a generous amount of time on our part. I have to end up grappling with her, which is a last resort and quite upsetting on both parts . She will hide the phone, sneak it up to her room, get her older sister to get it back etc. I have turned off the 4G capability and also tried turning off the WiFi connection but this still doesn't deter her. Is there a way that I can carry out a 'total shutdown' after a certain time at night, or after a certain amount of usage ? Any help would be so very much appreciated.
