I recently paid a visit to my cousin`s family , I was keen to see my nephew grown up in that two year spell of time since I saw him last. I witnesses him as that teenager with premature beard and mustache but was unhappy to notice his behavioral change . Instead of spending time and chatting during the tea , he barely blinked his eyelid and was occupied with cellphone.While prompted by his mom twice to stay in the conversation , he reacted harsh . What should be the remedy for such common problem ??

I would give preteens or older kids a flip phone where they could only call or text. They have to learn self control before I would give them a smartphone. I would also ideally teach them morals, such as respecting people during a conversation, and that means putting the phone down/away and knowing when the appropriate times are to use a cellphone.

Take the Phone Away from Him or do not give him a phone until he able to pay for 1 out fo his own money.

Parents give cell phones at a early age to play with . Cell phones are a toy to most young children. . Their parents put a game on and give the cell phone to their children to play with. The children grew up thinking they had to have a cell phone. I seen children as young as six with their own cell phone. No child should have a cell phone unless they have a job and can pay for it themselves. That was the rule with my youngest three children. You want a cell phone. You get a part time and you pay for the cell phone yourself.
