Q. Last year I bought a cell phone for my son so we could stay in touch. He got into a little trouble - bad grades, or something, and his mother took away his phone without consulting me. First, I pay for this phone, so I do not believe she has the right to take it away. Second, I can't talk to him! His mother says he will not be able to use the phone for another month! I live five hours away and only see him once a month! This can't be good ex-etiquette!
