SAT prep in West Caldwell, NJ

11/09/2016
Deciding whether to give your child a cellphone is a tough decision. While it may seem obvious to say no, cellphones can act as safety devices along with providing access to learning information and applications. If you decided to give your child a cell phone and find that it is proving to be too much of a distraction for their study, The Tutoring Center, West Caldwell NJ has some tips which can help.

Education First

Sit down and have a comfortable chat about the appropriate use of cell phones, including where to and where not to use them. In particular, do what you can to show a connection between their cell phone usage and low grades. To keep the conversation light, don't focus only on the places where they can't use their phone. Speak about places where they can use their cellphone, and even encourage appropriate use.

Parental Controls

Take advantage of any parental control options which are built into their cellphone's operating system. These settings can limit the various types of usage such as times of the day and even the category of apps which can be installed.

Usage as an Incentive

Sometimes students will find a way to use their cellphone while studying at home. To combat this, change the wifi password during their study times. Once they can show you completed homework, you can provide the new password.

Last Resort

Of course, as a last resort, consider taking away your child's cellphone until they can prove they are mature enough to not let it affect their studying and grades.
