I have been recently using technology ever since. It means so much for me and it really helps by researching answers , playing other games that are entertaining, and it pleases me to watch simple ASMR videos. But my mom on the other hand, hates it when I use it in the morning. why? because she doesn't get the point that technology can be a lot of things(fun, exciting, engaging, entertaining,) it even is enthusiastic. But my mom somehow hates that I doing those simple things, She even lets me give up the phone in the morning close to noon for absolute no purpose at all. She no thinks it is crap that I am doing. it doesn't make any sense! I am 13, and I can go on social media to have other friends, hang out, and have a good time, She acts like an freaking Karen when she sees me on social media. She doesn't allow me to go on social media now, NOR MY SISTER. now that really gets me agrivated, that is pretty unfair for just one family, you know I need it to have a good time. WHY DID YOU HAVE TO DO THIS MOM!? any solutions anyone?

I think you should build a better relationship with your mum, understand her point of view and approach problems with her diplomatically. You shouldn't give priority to social media over family relationships. You should know that social media is a dangerous place which is addictive and likely to lead to mental health problems. I think your mum is doing it to protect you.

Probably not what you want to hear but I think its important you know.

Maybe she has a point. You're 13 and you seem to have quite an unhealthy attachment to technology.

well, my sister does the same thing too. So sometimes I am basically trying to teach my sister a lesson about tech. (myself too)

Get some friends and hobbies in real life so you can learn to interact properly with others, and get out of the house and get some fresh air and exercise rather than being slumped over a phone most of the day.

It is not healthy to constantly be in front of a screen. Listening to ASMR or calm music at night to help you calm down and fall asleep and texting your friends during the day is reasonable but you dont need to be doing it all day. Your mum knows what she's talking about, listen to her.

she's probably gone about you using technology less in a horrible way but, she seems right to an extent. technology is extremely addictive to fully grown adults let alone 13 year old children. the repercussions of you becoming addicted to it can be enormous and it will be ridiculously hard to break an addiction, since your brain is developing and your going to have the easiest time building habits for your life right now.

Well, my sister spends a little more time on her phone than me. I sometimes take breaks and open the window or spend time on my fidget spinner.

chill just focus on something else. your too young to be pissed off. ik that sounds mean but that's me being completely honest. try and talk to your mom but if she doesn't budge leave her alone and go do something else. any arguing past that won't be productive and you shouldn't NEED a phone anyway, they're are alot of cool things you can do without one.

'she does it too' doesnt make it okay/healthy? I highly doubt you have nothing else to do but those two options.
