I'm wanting ideas from others, as I really need to set clearer, stronger boundaries re internet use. I feel as though my daughter has all the power at the moment so I need to get this back, and I think the key is by restricting internet access. I think so many arguments/her attitude are stemming from this. I just don't quite know where to start. She is 12 and has an ipad and a phone with no data. We have home wifi and unlimited data as I have 2 x 21yos who use a fair bit for uni and gaming. I also use a low to mod amount so as there are techinically (!) 3 adults in the house we still want unlimited access for us. She plugs devices in upstairs at night so I know she's not on them in her room in bed. At least I've done one thing right! otherwise, its just too much time on internet, me feeling anxious for her to get off, attitude, and arguments. I'm thinking an app like in one of these posts but wondering if there is anything I can do without having to get into her devices to do it. Any ideas on how to do this with minimum hysteria would also be welcomed!
