I would like to reply to sonia's thread, and as a mom i have strived to be as patient as possible with young people here than i am even with my own children. But i also have many questions so i start this. All adults have been teens, so we hope we understand them better, but in truth it is a very perplexing time for me to deal w/ people their age-). On the other hand, they (my kids at least) think i am not understanding, inflexible, whatever i can add to the list.
For one, seeing them holding celphones when waking up is so annoying to me. I say not to use their phones before bed, and to put away some distance from them esp so as not to be tempted to do stuff there at night, and in the morning too. Whether a school day or not, u see them with it. Quickly checking updates is alright, but longer than that...-( But its a habit they wont break, and at times i am so tempted to grab the thing and throw it away. Which ive never done though.
Any thoughts, suggestions? Thanks.
