This is the world we live in and it's not necessarily a negative thing. If you're concerned with her phone use potentially causing her headache, ask her to look up the relationship between excessive phone use and headaches and let her read it for herself; this will not only make her more aware and conscious of her phone use, but it makes her take responsibility for her own well being all while you still get to be a concerned mom.

And, Kate...I'd go for the physical and eye exam anyway...just in case. Headaches can by symptomatic of other health problems. How old is your daughter?

Forgot to add...But, if she's having headaches, you may also want to look into having her eyes checked, and a general physical done as well.

No one really knows the exact link between cell phones, migraines, cancer, etc. Perhaps it would be helpful to look into some of that.

However, if you feel that your kid spends too much time on her phone, you can limit that time. You can set the time limits for when phone has to be off for the day, and by not allowing her unlimited talk & text, her call time will also be limited if she doesn't want to run out of monthly allowance.
