So I'm not sure what to do...or if we should do anything. So DH and I have DD10 and SD10 (fixing to be 11) that live with us. SD13 and SD9 live with BM. All same BM. Well BF and I agreed that there wouldn't be any cell phones for the kids for the kids that live with us until at least Jr. High. We did talk and get one for DD ONLY to take when she goes to her BFs because he wouldn't answer his phone. So she gets it when she is leaving and it is taken back when she walks in the door. SD13 got a cell phone from BM a couple of years ago...fine, she lives with BM, DH felt like that was her decision. So he doesn't even monitor SD13s phone. So BM got SD10 a cell phone for her birthday. Well, she is going to...her bday is Wednesday. DD has been begging for a phone and I keep telling her no. So now I should do what? Should SD10 be able to have a cell, even though DH and I told them no cell phones? Should we let her have it when at our house for communication with BM only? Should it just be let go completely? I don't know. I just hate telling DD all the time "Well you are my kid, I make the decisions for you". And I say it ALLTHE TIME! It is really hard when they are the same age, the same gender and live in the same house, but the rules are always different.
