CMCH Synopsis: A group of teenagers and their parents were interviewed about cell phones, curfews and how these rules were made between parent and child. The authors found that parents were more willing to allow children more freedom if they had a cell phone. Teens were willing to put up with parents invading their space by calling any time they wanted in order to gain more freedom. Center on Media and Child Health
