      i guess if she has to lose sleep, i'd rather it be over something like that than a real problem.

    ...stop asking and to sit alone, it's OK. I know I can mention it to the driver but I don't want to force anyone one to sit with her-KWIM? WWYD? :-(

      in public areas only and no downloading apps or anything else without permission. Within hours she had snuck it into the bathroom where she downloaded musical.ly and snapchat. So she hasn't had it back since then. She is probably the only one among her friends who doesn't text and the ones who are 7th grade and above seem to all have at least some social media...but you know what, it hasn't hurt her social life at all. I'm sure when she is with her friends they do whatever, but that doesn't mean I have to let her do it while she's not with them. And when kids come to my house they are not allowed to use the internet, in general.
