Any experienced parents have ideas on how to curb technology for their teens? Teachers incorporate homework on the computers these days so they can't simply unplug. Students are multi-tasking with social media, texting, YouTubing, gaming. Technology isn't all bad, it's informative and entertaining but even as adults, we are distracted with it.
Some parents just have their students do their homework in a shared living area so they are supervised but I want to give my child independence too. Some cut the wifi at a certain hour. But again, they have homework on the computer.
Surely, someone is going to say to set limits, but I'd like more details on that, like what did you do and what works.
Any other ideas? Thanks.
