Think there is anything wrong with calling/texting your middle schooler during the school day? I'm not talking about during a break/lunch I'm talking during instruction.

Yes of course. Parents shouldn't be interrupting their children during the school day. Boy have times changed...

Yes. They are in school to learn and shouldn't have their phones out at all.

Well, my daughter has her phone off during the day.  She gets home from school before I get home from work.  So if I need to remind her or ask her to do something when she gets home, I'll send her a text.  That way I won't forget and she'll have it when she turns her phone on after school.

I wouldn't just converse with her in the middle of the day.

Our middle schools dont even permit children having cell phones so that wouldn't even be an option.  If it were, I would think it was ridiculous for any parent trying to contact their children in the middle of the school day.

 Yes. Kids shouldn't have phones on them in class in the first place.
