can't believe some of you all think this is controlling. When I was 13 I got my first computer, my parents put restrictions on that as well. The mom is getting the kid an iphone and he is 13! If you all don't believe a 13 year old needs some kind of rules with that, then you haven't seen much of todays generation I guess. Shes actually trying to teach him how to take full advantage of it, but while not deterring him from his studies etc. kids are growing up quick these days with all this technology around them, and they need some kind of guidance with that
Yes of course, because the 13yo never touched another portable internet device before. /s
The guidance happens gradually, does not happen over-night.
As a matter of fact the mother wrote so many rules for her 13yo that gives me the impression that she never did anything with her 13yo before.
