"Should I force my son to do something extracurricular?"

This week’s "Tips on Teens" comes from a mother who is tired of her son spending all day on his phone and is wondering if she should force her son to do something extracurricular. Here's the question:

"My son is about to start high school and I really want him to do something extracurricular. I don’t care what it is as long as he does something! I can’t stand that he spends so much time staring at his phone. I want him to have fun and meet new people. He says he doesn’t want to do ANYTHING… just go to school and come home to relax. Am I crazy if I force him to do something?"
