So your teen has a cellphone. Maybe you love it and maybe you hate it. For one: It's always ringing, or buzzing, or playing some stupid, Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy ... ringtone. Or maybe they've taken to texting you to pass the butter at the dinner table instead of asking. The horror!
I'm sure, though, that part of the reason you bought said cellphone was not only to keep tabs in touch, but also to teach your teen to be responsible for his/her belongings. Umm, mom and dad ... do you really think your kid is worried about learning a thing or two about responsibility? Nnnootttt. The first thought that popped into their head was how they're going to personalize every inch of their brand spankin' new gadget. And well, if you can't beat 'em, might as well join 'em, right? Here are a few tips that'll turn decorating and bedazzling your teen's cellphone into a fun treat for the whole family!

Even though it runs the risk of being annoying (you'll hear it every time they get a text, call, picture message), it's so much better than a ringback! It'll also teach your teen to pay attention to his/her phone -- so you won't ever have to worry why they're not picking up when you call.
