What to Do About Screen Addiction?

Question

My 11-year-old son is obsessed with screens. If we tell him to do something while he is on his phone or iPad he huffs and puffs or we are told, “in a minute." Then he only gets 2 out of 3 chores done because he’s in such a hurry to get back on screens. When he is grounded from screens he expects us to entertain him because he is so bored and there’s nothing else to do. We did get him a phone because he is home alone and we don’t have a landline so it’s not really possible to take his phone away completely during the week.
