Teen Cell Phone Vs. No Cell Phone

I have yet to see something about taking a stand against cell phones. My son has been asking, actually begging me to get him one (he is 16). We have gone round and round on the issue. He poses a very good argument as do I. I need some additional insight as to why he should and should not have one. He is a “good” teen as much as I can tell but I worry about the TEXTING that gets out of control, the phone calls in the middle of the night or alone in his bedroom, who is calling and how long or often is he chatting with a girl or his...

Too Much Texting

My 13 year old 7th grader cant stop texting! He would text 24/7 if he could stay up that long. I dont think it is healthy to be in constant contact with anyone as much as he does. Am I overreacting or should I just put limits on when he can use his phone?

The problem I have with the him and the computer is that he does not communicate with us at all about anything. He goes straight to his room and does not come out unless we call...

Myspace for Teens

My 13 year old daughter has been bugging the heck out of me to let her get a "Myspace". Her friends have them and she feels like it's a way to stay connected. She told me that I could have her password to get into the account and that it would be exclusive to her friends that I know only....I told her I would think about it. I have been totally against having a Myspace for years. I didn't see the point and surely didn't have the time...Well several of my friends from back home told me that our classmates have been reconnecting through...

Wii or Not to Wii?

My husband and I have been talking for almost a year now about getting Nintendo Wii for Christmas and we are very excited. We have 3 boys, ages 6, 5, and 2 and they will just love something like that! But now I keep hearing about other systems like the Playstation Move and Xbox 360...... i'm so confused. Is the Wii "old school" now? Does anyone own a PS3 Move or Xbox 360? I'm not a proponent of regular video games for the kids and I'm afraid if we have a ps3 in the house, my husband would go back to his college days of playing madden all...
