I bought my boys phones for Christmas and their dad refuses to let them bring them to his house during his parenting time. Is there anything I can do?
In my opinion, it is the father's decision. I am old-fashioned and believe that kids today are entirely too addicted to their cell phones, with undesirable results. The adults of my generation got along very nicely without cell phones, as we spent much of our time playing touch football, driveway basketball, and sandlot softball, along with bike riding and other outdoor activities. Cell phones pre-empt the time and attention of kids today which isn't good. I believe that most judges would agree with my take on this, unless there is some compelling reason to conclude otherwise.
