 I know there is some type of tracker you can load on the IPad and the phone to track the websites they are at. I make my kids do homework at the kitchen table that might also stop her from using sites you do not want her too. Good luck

Mine did homework at the kitchen table. Mine didn't have phones. They didn't need it for homework. If they needed the computer they used it in public sight.

My phone bill shows every phone call, to who and when.

Can't she bring the ipad out into a common area of the house while she is doing her homework so you can see that it is actually being done?

I didn't allow mine to use phones/ipads for homework. The screen is so terrible and small - if internet was required, we had 3 laptops and a desktop - there were plenty of other alternatives. I would randomly surprise her and grab the phone to check it. KIK is also banned in this house because of how dangerous it is.

My 12yr old goes to a different high school than her older siblings and her school is one of the ones doing all textbooks on a tablet instead of physical books. The exception being the novels for English.

Can't say that I think it's the best idea, but her older siblings are incredibly jealous of her light school bag, so I see the positives

Have her come out of her room to do her homework. Too much temptation for a 14 year old

If she's not finishing until midnight, she's not staying on task and focusing. Either that or she's not even starting it until late. My DD is a sophomore and starts her homework as soon as she gets home; the longest it take is 2 hours (unless she has a big project she's working on). It shouldn't take 3-4 hours for homework.
