I broke my son’s phone and made him walk 3 miles home

MUM-ba Roxy Bond may look like a picture-perfect mom, but she admits that the rampage caused her to smash her son’s phone and make him walk three miles home.

She is the mother of sons Ethan, 15, and William, 13, as well as daughter Gracie, eight.

Roxy, 33, lives in South Wingfield, Derbys, with her husband Chris, 47, a support services manager, and Gracie’s father and says she immediately felt guilty after losing her temper.

The social media company owner says, “Having ‘mom tantrums’ is an inevitable part of raising kids because they push buttons.

But every time I fly off the handle, I feel terrible afterwards.
I beat myself up and asked myself how I could have handled the situation better.

Maybe I could have told them everything, or I should have taken a break to calm down.

By shouting and yelling at the kids, I know I’m not setting the right example. But staying calm isn’t always easy.

Rage crept in when Ethan became a teenager and he began to challenge my parenting decisions.

During one stand before cleaning his room I took his phone away but he kept answering so I smashed it to pieces on the floor.

I was shocked and upset with myself afterwards. With hindsight, it’s an absolute must.

I ended up paying £150 for a replacement a week later because I wanted Ethan to have a phone in case of an emergency.

Another time, I was upset about him being late for school, so I drove away, leaving him on the three-mile walk home. If he and William had an argument, I would wade in.

How I react depends on how tired I am or whether I feel stressed. I angrily took their phone away.

When boys refuse to leave their computers, it drives me crazy. I give them 15, 10 and 5 minute warnings but they still cross the line.

I now have an app on my phone that connects to an outlet in their room. I use it to turn off their Xbox and PlayStation if they don’t do what they say.

There was a time when I lost my temper and rolled out of bed to sulk. It’s funny, but every mother has a trigger.

I feel more comfortable with Gracie, maybe because she is my youngest and last child.

She goes with more than the other two and we don’t confront that much.

However, that can change as she reaches her teen years and the hormones kick in. “
