Ah the joys of parenting teens/young adults while we are in our "stupid" phase (according to them). We may be stupid and out of touch, but we have the pursestring's which enable their lives. Challenging to keep a balanced and Christian interaction when they push your buttons.

Convinced me that phone/tech addiction is real. Social media controlling our kids? Sure makes parenting more difficult. She becomes a zombie if we let her have the phone all the time because sleep is then compromised. So we’ve dropped the hammer. Fun times.
