While a smartphone can be a great learning tool for your child, it can also become a source of distraction that could prevent them from doing their best on their academic efforts. To learn how you can help your child manage their cell phone usage, continue reading the post below.

How to Prevent Cell Phone Distractions

  1. First and foremost, you need to set rules around your child's cell phone usage. Have a conversation with them where you go over the dangers of cell phone addiction. During your talk, explain when they can and can't use it, and what measures to take to remain as safe ass possible while using the device.
  2. Something your child should always be mindful of is that their academics are their main responsibility right now, and as such, they should be their priority. Their cell phone is a privilege that should only be enjoyed once they have fulfilled their academic duties.
  3. If your child truly enjoys using their cell phone, you can use this to your advantage. Use their cell phone as an incentive. This can motivate them to do what they have to do in an efficient manner. For instance, if they wake up every day at the right time, they can use their cell phone.
  4. If it's your child turn to use the cell phone, then you should activate the parental controls on it before handing it over. They will restrict access to certain websites, apps, and other behavior on the phone.
  5. Last but not least, you can employ the restriction of the cell phone as punishment. However, only use this as a last resort, once they have showed time and time again that they don't have the maturity to use the device.
