She is not controlling him at all really. Just giving him some basic rules to abide by. Have you seen how ignorant a lot of phone users are nowadays?
They're either texting or have their head in facebook. Even when you're trying to have a conversation with them.
Anyway i don't think kids need phones, other than for emergencies. Majority of us got on fine without a mobile phone.
Well honestly, most of us probably came from a time when mobile phones either weren't remotely common or simply weren't practical(see the old phones the size of your head).
Anyway, some of these rules are just ridiculous. For example 4 and 5 basically mean the phone will almost never be used outside of weekends. Which is kind of a waste of money to pay for.
