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.
