Why is it not appropriate to confiscate your Child’s Phone

June 17, 2016

Parents of teenagers have to be very careful when making rules for their children. Teenagers don’t like to be dictated all the time. They need freedom and privacy. If parents try to look into their personal matters they get agitated and hide things from their parents. If you are anxious about the use of cell phone by your teen, you need to carefully decide upon the rules.

Why is it not appropriate to confiscate your Child’s Phone

If you confiscate your child’s phone, it will not only effect your relation with your child but also create difficulty in communicating with him/her.

Problems you face after confiscating your child’s phone:
• You won’t be able to know who your child is with, where they are and what are the activities in which they are involved
• Teen drivers might need to call if their car breaks down or they get lost.
• Disconnecting might make it harder to manage a class load and impact grades; teens may need to check assignments, classroom Twitter accounts, and emails for scholarships or practice times.
• Removing a phone would isolate teens from their peers. Teens favor texting over real conversations.
• They can still access the Internet to message and play games on other devices. Removing a cell phone will only inconvenience the family.
