I have similar problems with my 11-year-old daughter. I have to just take away her devices sometimes, and she hates me for it. She knows how to ride a bike fine, but doesn't feel comfortable on one, so I sometimes make her ride bikes with me when the weather's nice. You'd think I was torturing her.

Excellent question. Just a bait idea that went wrong IMO. I'm more rough around the edges than the wife, if it was my choice there would be no tv in the room. 1 game system, lights out at 9.30, chores to be done etc. these are not bad things but things that aren't part of the schedule. Sometimes its tough to get a point across without sounding the bad guy so I let a lot go for the peace of it. But I think the TV is the starting point, it has to be taken out. I'll talk to the wife
