I've seen so many posts where the knee jerk reaction anytime a teen does something wrong is to "take off their bedroom door, and confiscate their phone and electronics"
Why is that? Do you really think that's going to work? I think you're just asking for rebellion if you treat your teens like that.
I've never done that to my kids. They turn 18 next month and they still talk to us with respect, with openness and with honesty. They're not perfect, my daughter was even caught shop lifting once, but the community service she was ordered to perform taught her that was a bad idea, but they are great kids that love and respect their parents.
