Also know what kind of music your child is listening to.  Make sure your child understands that using technology is a privilege, not a right. When children use technology inappropriately, there should be consequences.  If your child has a cell phone, check the text message inbox and sent messages periodically.  During dinner, turn off the TV and all cell phones. Use this time to talk about your day.  Have your child“power down”(turn off the TV, music, computer, etc.) an hour before bedtime.  Require that all phones be plugged in for recharging in a central location each night.  Be on guard for excessive computer use and secretive behavior. Also watch for any emotional upset after spending time on a computer.  Praise your child for positive online activities, just as you would for other positive activities.
