Do you regulate the amount of time your teen is on their cell phone?
It seems like my 13 yr old daughter is on her phone texting non-stop.
I do take the kids phones at night - so no phone the their rooms after bedtime.
If so how? When and how much is too much?
My son has aphone as well but he's not on it constently... Age 12

^^Same with me luvmygrandbaby- my boys had to be able to pay for their phones & actually didn't get them until they graduated from HS. My middle son has a job at age 16 & could've afforded it, but it's amazing what you will find necessary or not, if the parents won't be footing the bill. :p For graduation, I bought them the prepaid phones, but had to take them back when their dad added them onto his plan as his graduation gift to them. They still pay for them, as well as car insurance. OP: I think taking them away at night is a great idea. If you are concerned about their texting too much, you may want to arrange for you to be able to read them.
