hi Pardip Kaur! I do understand the situation completely ! since this habit has developed over years , it would take few months if not years to get rid of it. u need to be firm and make rules which all members have to follow , including u yourself . no gadgets during mealtime. infact , phones should be kept away from the dining room in silent mode. secondly reduce screen time to just 1 hour per day ..set a time for it. after that he should not use it or else he has to face the consequences. which could be Being grounded or no TV viewing etc. and in case he does follow the rules , he deserves 15 minutes extra of playtime or a reward. make sure u do follow the consequences and give priveleges as per the situation or else he will not take u seriously next time. all family members have to follow the rules or they too have to face the same consequences. u can write down rules on a chart paper in bold letters for all to see. Pardip this requires lot of patience , perseverance and persistent efforts . Pardip he will come around soon. tkcare!
