I have a 14 year old daughter and the cell phone and TV are huge distractions. I have a place away from the TV and without the cell phone, where she is required to do home work everyday for a specific amount of time, at the same time each day. We chose the hour after the news but before the "prime time" shows come on. We chose this time rather than right after shcool, this way I am able to assist her if needed and give a little "reminder" to stay on track when she needs it. For the most part she chooses whether she uses that time effectively or not, if she does'nt then that means a loss of TV or phone time to finish the work that needs to be done. This proved helpful, she ended the middle shcool year with a 3.0 GPA, but it was not without challenges, the biggest getting into a routine and enforcing the loss of TV/phone time. I'm sure next year (high school) will force me to revamp my whole set up lol!

My little brother is 14 and he's slipping in school. If I was his mother, I'd take away ALL of the video games, no tv, no computer. He wouldn't be going out with friends. Those are a HUGE distraction for him. I'd help quiz before tests. Check over homework (if I even knew it). Maybe have some reward for good grades.
