Rules for Smartphone Use


My 10-year-old daughter has a smartphone - I know, I know, mistake #1. Her dad is overseas, so this allows her to FaceTime him. I'm trying to backtrack here because she has no motivation to do anything or use her mind to solve her own problems. She wants to be a pitcher, play piano, soccer, etc., but won't practice. If we take away devices, TV included, she cries and sits like a bump on a log. We are still going to take them away though! My thoughts are, they are taken away until she shows motivation and can entertain and think for herself. My question is, how long should they be taken away for?
