I can't believe he did it again!

My son got in trouble at school AGAIN! I want to ground him from his phone, but he needs to be able to use it because he babysits his brother and sister and I don't have a home phone. Does anyone know how to block his ability to text message and use things like snapchat, Twitter, and imessage (he has an iPhone, btw)?

 I have no idea. Take it away and give him a flip phone only while he is babysitting.

Buy a cheap phone that he could put his SIM card into. A cheap flip phone...turn off texting and data. Or warn him you will find out if he uses it. You can look that stuff up.

I've tried that before, but he can still use Wi-Fi

Can't he just turn it back on when he has the phone?

If he can't behave at school why are you trusting him to care for your other kids?

No idea.  Maybe get him a cheap, pre-paid flip phone for emergencies and take his away until his behavior improves.
