Dad Came up With a Hilarious Way to Get His Teen off Her Phone

I have an almost-teenager. My sons are 10 and 12 and your typical tweens; they are asserting their independence, and becoming increasingly embarrassed by public displays of affection from their mother. This makes me very upset! What do you mean you don’t want to hold mommy’s hand anymore?!?

Most teenagers think their parents are totally embarrassing. Sad but true! The little buggers are destined to blossom into their own personalities.

But as parents, we still want to keep our children close. One dad figured out a way to do just that.
