Young teen asks for professional advice…doesn’t get what he/she wanted

Sleeping Next To Your Phone: Is It A Bad Idea?

You’ve just gotta love Dr. Robert Wallace, a member of the National Education Association and the National Association of High School Administrators.  Wallace writes a national advice column taking questions from readers.

Here’s an excerpt from a column he just posted:

Every night before I go to bed, my parents take my phone away from me and put it in their room. In the morning they give it back to me when I finish breakfast and am ready to leave for school.

Should I ask my parents to let me have my phone 24/7 like my friends do?

Oh my. Now I don’t know about you, but that’s like tossing a big fat juicy meatball over home plate to Willie Mays.

How did Wallace respond? The answer is here.
