I have a ss whom I have known for 12 yrs. (2 to 15) He has always been a really nice boy and very respectful grades everything is great. But just these 2 or 3 months he has been slacking off he met a girl and I don't ask him questions but I hope they haven't gone all the way bc of his ways being so different now. He has been skipping classes and being absent alot he does not live with us but visit us on the wkends.
Anyway I told my dh maybe you should let continue to let him have his cell but tell him no texting for a week as some form of punishment if he doesn't straighten up same punishment will apply the whole summer. Well this is me (the stepmom) suggesting this...Idk what my dh plans on doing but he has already talked to him and now we'll see what happens. Honestly I think he is letting him go easy. ONE week without texting is not gonna kill him that is the example I'd like to give. What would u do? Thx.

We usually sit them down and have a chat. I don't suspend the whole texting thing. I take the whole phone. I will also take the internet away. My boys are 16 and 13. When I leave the house or when it is time to go to sleep, I take the modem with me. Without that their phones, ipods and psp's are worthless.
