The digital age has made discipline a little more difficult. Kids are addicted to their electronics and taking them away angers them (but can be effective in teaching them a lesson). And it's never worse than when that action needs to be taken against a raging, hormonal teen. I've even heard stories of kids standing at the foot of their parents' beds, saying on repeat, "Can I have my phone back now?" for hours (hours!). Just cover your ears and keep your eye on the ball, parents: this is for the greater good!
