I just want to give up and switch to a dumb phone. Is that completely unrealistic?

“Found out yesterday some really disappointing things my daughter has said on social media. she is going into middle school in the fall and just got this phone as a “reward” for great grades. My husband and I are Trying to think of the best solution. But don’t you think it’s crazy that most parents (me included) PAY for an expensive device, that even has monthly charges and then on top of that need to PAY for a really good “monitoring “ system that is supposed to keep out the bad. :roll_eyes::roll_eyes:

" No we have thought about it as well. I only want a phone for them so we can keep in contact. All the other is not necessary plus what a comfort in knowing there is no cyber bullying cyber Preditors, bad web sites and so forth. We cant stop everything but why do we welcome it in our homes and pay for it."
