My dd lost the privilege of owning a cell phone. Long story to lead to it eventually happening.

Anyways, she wants a cell phone. We told her no. It would take a lot of work for us to even consider buying her one and there is no guarantee that the first one will be a smart phone. Maybe we will start back over with a flip phone. ( She lost all privileges and she can't leave the house without a cell phone, trust issues as well). She said if we buy her a flip phone she will be mad and probably break it and I said even if that is the only way you can leave the house without someone with you. She said I would not leave the house with a flip phone. Ok I guess she doesn't want a phone or her privileges back bad enough.

She is 17. Yes she is 17 but I do have our reasons.

More power to ya. 17 doesnt mean shit if you are paying for it. Kids these days act entitled to cell phones at 11. Its insane.

I can't even imagine how much you must have screwed up to have a 17yo who doesn't have a job and isn't allowed to even leave your home.

This is sad.

wow ... I'd rather be allowed to leave the house with a shitty phone then be cooped up at home 24/7 !  But then again I'm not a teenage girl ...

Seems fine to me. If my kid told me that she would break a phone I bought if it wasn't what she wanted, she would never be bought a phone again for the rest of her life.

I really hope your child is in therapy then, at 17 this shouldnt be a continued issue unless she has issues and they need to be dealt with. Once she is 18 you will have no control what she does anymore.
