I purchased Freedom From Defense Mode. It discusses how we need to set the right environment for success for our kids. I was letting my son have his phone ALL night with the promise he would turn it off at 11:00 PM on a school night. Of course that wasn’t happening and he was too tired to get up for school the next day! I purchased the BARK app and set time parameters. My husband and I also had a family meeting with him regarding technology rules. We wrote out a technology contract. He was also getting in trouble in school for having his phone out during class. So I’ve turned off his wifi during school hours except during lunch. So far he has already broken one of the rules. Instead of fighting him for his phone, I can now just click off his screen time. I really hope this helps. Any input is welcome.
