Does it seem like your son or daughter is obsessed with screens? Are they always playing Fortnite? Are they constantly checking Instagram? Does it seem like screens have taken over your teen's life?
Rather than adding value to their life, you have seen screen time has taken away from your teen's life.
They would rather stay home and play video games than go out with friends. They become almost hostile when you threaten to take away their phones.
They used to enjoy sports and other activities, but now they only want to be on a screen. And their grades are horrible! It’s like they don't even care about doing assignments.
Your teen has so much potential, but they are too focused on screen use to reach it. It’s like their entire world revolves around screens. It's sad to see them waste their potential.
How do you respond? You tried to implement consequences, but they become so angry you have become exhausted arguing. When you do implement consequences, it seems like they always finds a way around it. It's impossible to set boundaries on technology because they know more than we do!
You tried countless times to reinforce rules and boundaries with screen time, but it is a losing battle. Nothing seems to make a difference. You're exhausted, frustrated, and out of ideas.
