I have 2 sd a 14yr old and a 15 yr old a phone for christmas but ...........
they are disrespectful, rude, they dont pick up after them selves when they are at our house but the reason I want to do it is because they do not have a phone at their house and their mother answers the phone when she wants to. She leaves them alone and one of them walks to and from school so I feel like she NEEDS it incase something happens to her.
I also feel like I can take it away when they misbehave. My dh agreees with me now but i do not know if i take their phone away if he will be supportive because I am alot strickter than he is. I know the phone will be a good tool to get them to be on their best behavior. i do not blame them for most of their behavior as they do not have a role model at their home (their mother) she is a lost case. I want to get them their phone to teach them some responsibility........but im not too sure what would you do?
