Nowadays, more and more students in middle school and high school are using cell phones. Since we cannot forbid our child using phones, we must guide them to use phones correctly in order to prevent them from forming unhealthy habits. In the following, I will give you some suggestions.

Arrange the contacting time

Most parents are buying cell phone for their children with the purpose that it will make it easier to contact each other. In this regard, the parents should arrange the contacting time. Therefore, parents and children can contact each other in this period of arranged time. If the children can contact their parents regularly, it will reduce the parents’ worry.

Many parents are easy to make the mistake of prying their children’s text massages, which will cause the dislike and negative mentality of children.

The wise parents will never make this kind of mistake, to the opposite, they will respect the privacy of their children. This doesn’t means they don’t care about them. They grasp the children’s status by frequently observing their actions and words together with contacting and communicating with teachers. By the way, parents should remind children not to use others’ phones without permission. Even if it was permitted, it’s also impolite to check the personal information in phone such as communication recording, SMS and so on.

Pay attention to the words you are using when calling

Since cell phone is a tool of communication, parents should pay attention to the words you are using when calling. Even if you are very worried and angry with the child’s performance, you also must pay attention to the language arts, which is more efficient to let the children know that you care for him.

Appropriate reminding

As a communication tool, mobile phone makes it more convenient to the contact between classmates and friends. However, they often chat with each other on phone for a long time, which is a waste of time. So parents should remind children to use terse language and not to disturb others and occupy others’ time.

Otherwise, they may form some unhealthy habits that you never want see. Keep these suggestions in mind, and they will help you and your child to prevent the troubles.
