Just wanted to point out that she isn't my cousin, but my cousin's wife. Weird though that your aunt's/uncle's husband/wife is generally called your uncle/aunt.

I see taking a kid's cell phone away during lunch as kind of extreme. And the rationale "they have to learn to interact face-to-face" as simplistic. First of all, unless they're on the phone the entire lunch period and every lunch period, they have a chance for face-to-face interactions. And by taking away the phones, kids (very shy, etc.) aren't necessarily going to just start interacting. Or learn to interact WELL with kids. That might take some guidance from adults. I actually think technology could be used to identify kids who are struggling socially (maybe kids who are constantly on the phone during lunch do so to avoid social interactions). Teachers could identify these kids and get them help (e.g., through the guidance counselors, parents, themselves).

BTW, this cousin is the one that had the "women should be submissive to their husbands" pre-dinner "prayer". So she's apparently a stickler to "rules". Funny, I've found that women who profess to believe this tend to be the LEAST submissive people.
