Hi @Ansh28 and welcome to the Parent's Forum! We hope that you are able to find the support you need from our community Heart

I'm so sorry that you are having to deal with this from both of your teens, please know that you are not alone and phone use is a common concern for a lot of parents. 

Here are some tips about starting a conversation with your teencommunicating effectively with your teen, and reducing social media use that you may find useful.

Is their mobile phone use impacting their sleep patterns at all? 

Are you able to take any time-out for yourself and practice a little self-care to help reduce some of the stress and frustration this must be causing you?
