My 16 year old boy is always chatting with girls on phone. he is wasting most of his day in this. whenever asked to stop he starts to shout back on us. He says they are his classmates and he is asking them school work. He mostly talks to them in his room and doesn't allow us there. His phone is constantly buzzing. How do I deal with this.

Hi @moni! whosoever amongst you and your husband feels comfortable, can talk to him . Talk to him about the attraction towards the opposite sex and the hormonal changes that might be responsible for such behaviour .also you could discuss about precautions and things he should keep in mind at this age. Talk at length about cyber hygiene, digital safety and rules he should keep in mind while using gadgets .you need to be friends with him at this age @Moni, let him know what you went through at this age and all adolescents do. Also don't spy on him but just make him aware that he needs to be cautious at this age and respect girls and at no point trouble them.

Hi Moni This problem is very common in teenage, everyone has to face this problem, you can solve these thing very comfortably with love. Do tell your son that it is very important to study at this time, if he does not study now, then there can be a lot of problem going forward. You have to explain all this very comfortably with love, do not be scolded, be as a friend of the child, never be angry, if you will explain with love then the child will surely understand.
