For more concrete solutions: Consider having a common area computer rather than computers in children’s rooms. Have access to all of their accounts, even their cell phone, and check them regularly, not just periodically. Finally, create limits you think are fair for your family and that you will also follow. Some families limit computer, television, and gaming time, cell and texting minutes, prohibit cell phones from being charged in bedrooms overnight, and even have media-free periods. By being proactive and creating a forum for discussion, you will likely head off the newest troubles before they come knocking on your door.
