What are some effective ways to punish my Pre-teen for misuse on the Internet?
Hey Kerry thanks! This is the second time they have done this... I have tried that before for over 6months in fact. But apparently that didn't work now I'm trying to think of a more creative punishment.
Ty Skylerblue! Well last time I didn't take the phone however, this time I did! I think I am going to limit the texting and set her phone to only call 5 numbers! I have taken all electronics and no extra-curricular activities this week! Along with creative chores!!!

This is what I would do too in your place.
Do you mind sharing how she misused the internet?
She created a fake email and tried to hide it until I confronted her about it.
I believe she might be hanging with a new friend because after searching all deleted history and text messages my husband is a computer whiz and Marine figured out that a new friend might have had something to do with it
Agree, take away the PRIVILEDGE and put monitoring on computer. If she continues to misuse after [CONSEQUENCE] is lifted, do it again, but longer this time. Start now b/c by the time they get into late teens...it's 10x harder. And stand your ground!
I would also like to know how she misused.
Mavrick1957 Ty! Any advice is helpful! She created an email and deleted Internet and texting history that my husband found anyway!
would love to know how one can check deleted internet history and find texting history. I am such an non-techy person. I am barely figuring out how to set parental controls.
