Joanna Gaines Shares The 'Brilliant' Trick She Uses To Break Her Kids' Cellphone Addictions

Cell phones and teenagers is a topic everyone has an opinion on. While I believe children having access to a phone for safety reasons is a great idea, there's no denying smartphones are destroying children's ability to socialize and spend quality time with friends and family.

Now, Joanna Gaines is sharing how she's combating the common issue in her household.

Not only are you dealing with a hormonal gremlin, but you've also got to manage their social media habits! It's not like how it was back in the day, you know, with no internet, or a dial-up router.

Being a parent is especially challenging when you're in the public eye, like Chip and Joanna Gaines.

The pair, best known for their hit TV series Fixer Upper, share five children together —Drake, 16, Ella, 14, Duke, 13, Emmie, 11, and Crew, 3,

With three teenagers on their hands, Chip and Joanna are struggling with all the same things everyday parents are!

Now, in a new interview with *The Today Show* the 43-year-old is sharing her trick to keeping her teens off their phones.

After too much cell time was becoming a family issue, Joanna took the matter into her own hands and implemented a "phone station" in their home.

"It just became a house rule, when you’re at home, that all the phones go in one spot, so if you want to check a text, if you want to check an email, you go to that spot, but it’s not on your (body)," Joanna explained.

Hoda Kotb, who is mom to daughters Hope, 2, and Haley, 4, called the rule "brilliant" and honesty, I have to agree!
