Our children will shortly start commuting to school by train and to help us coordinate logistics of where everyone is, they will be getting phones for Christmas. They are all aged around 10 to 12.

I am looking for helpful advice on:

- what rules you set on your kids' phone usage,
- what rules you wish you had set at the outset
- what you learned that you wish you had known before they had phones
- useful apps etc
- apps to avoid or approach with caution
- good habits to encourage/ bad habits to avoid
- safety advice
- anything else constructive!

Many thanks in advance
