I don’t want to go to Bed

Alex says to me as I walked up to say good night, “I don’t want to go to bed, it gives me less time with you.” Sounds cute, right? It is except she doesn’t want to read or watch what we want to watch. She wants to be in the same room while she is watching YouTube videos or playing Pokemon Go or watching one of her cooking shows. She doesn’t really want to spend time with us, she wants to spend more time with a screen in front of her face.

Sometimes, well, a lot of times, I regret giving her the phone.

It is a necessity when she needs to get home from school or to contact her about where she is going but it is hard to give her that responsibility.
