    How do you get teenagers off Facebook and do some normal life stuff ?

    My kids never seem to be off social media and I can't unplug the computer as they don't live witg me.

    That's the million dollar question!  Unfortunately, we have so much immediate gratification with cell phones and internet access. Your kids will have to be a little bit willing to listen to ideas- What are their hobbies?  Maybe help them get interested in a new one?  I have been fortunate because most of the time my daughter monitors her own usage.  Good luck, wish I had the answer for you!

    I've unplugged the modem and told them that the internet was down. It worked like a charm and we all sat down to do a jigsaw puzzle. It works like a charm and have done it a few times...no harm just bonding.

    Give life a "like" button. Offer better alternatives.
