I gave my son his first phone and he couldn’t last a week without getting it taken away

My son is 12 and I thought he was responsible enough to handle getting a phone. It’s mainly for calling and texting when he needs to but I told him he couldn’t use the phone during the school week but being he was out of school for Thanksgiving week, I let him use it for a certain amount of time a day. We got home this evening and my wife told him to handle some chores and he just acted like she wasn’t there and went to the room to look at his phone.

He kept ignoring her and pouted and got mad when we got on him and I took his phone away and he won’t be getting it for a long time. I told him he couldn’t last a week without losing his privilege and he failed the test of being responsible. I have parental control on his phone and no social media so he wasn’t looking at that. He apologized and he is back to how he was before getting the phone. I didn’t realize how much a phone could change a kid like that.

Found a way to hack that parental code and was probably looking at r/nsfw

His mom needs to be punished as well. If you know what I mean.

My bad. I didn't mean to bully him. I just really needed to order a pizza and mine was dead.

Awful idea. They can get a phone when they get a drivers license. That shite rots their brains and the TikTok crap is brainwashing software

What type of phone did you buy him? Manufacturer?

Considering that his dad is always on worldstar, I’m not surprised. I wish someone would take your phone away.

He was watching pron. Be thankful he’s not gay. Go easy on him.

What was he looking at? Why not just delete safari and any other entertainment apps?

He was probably just cruising the TD forums and couldn't put his phone down from reading riveting threads like this.

An iPhone at 12 is insane to me

But it’s ok for the school to have trans and gay agendas.

I agree. Poor parenting decision at 12.
