How about making her hand you the phone at homework time and then not getting it back until her work is done? What is so hard about this? You are the parent not your child.

How about taking the phone away? Seems simple enough to me. Your kid shouldn't be playing with their phone unless homework is done anyway. And they can find a real calculator if necessary, so don't buy that lame excuse either.

You are the parent. Exercise some parental control.

Also agree,take the phone away,she can have it back when homeworks done..if she fusses about it then dont give it back until she realizes she has to do homework first.

Take her phone off her. It's called parenting. The rule in my house on week nights is that the phone goes on the kitchen bench and that's where it stays. No phones while doing homework.

Take away the phone.... Though my kids frequently do homework while watching a movie and it's not an issue. If it WERE an issue... the movie would be off.
