Blood Boiling

I am fighting a losing battle on cellphone technology it seems. Now my daughter who is 13 is not obsessed with her cellphone like her friends apparently are !!! So when they come over to visit or sleep over and end up sitting on their phones the whole time it makes my blood boil when I see my daughter just sitting there waiting for them to decide to chat with her - I mean is that not the reason why they came around......

I am at the point where I want to take these girls cell phones and ram it into the wall !!! My daughter tells me I cannot win. I even got to the point of telling them no cell phones allowed in my house.

Am I wrong here - am I fighting a losing battle.

My daughter does not do it to them - I think it is just plain rude.....

Ah the wonderful world of technology! I understand where your coming from. We did not come from a time of cell phones or computers to comunicate. I think this is the reason why why dont get it and find this to be rude. Is you daughter bothered by her friends doing this? If so maye she can speak up for herself? In my opnion you are fighting a loosing battle, your daughter is the one who needs to stand up for herself its upto herto let others know how she is to be treated. I feel like if you step in and make it rule that her freinds are to not use their cell phones could cause problems between your daughter and them?
