Communicate and lead by example
You have to depend on the relationship with your child; it is really difficult to control. It is not possible to keep eye on your child’s activities when they are at their school, so it is better to make them strong through practices. It is not necessary to totally ban the technology but you should set some strict rules on the use of the technologies. You can engage your child at the dinner times and do discuss about the interests of your teen.
