Thanks for all the advice. The second line may not be an option. I had
a second line for dialup but disconnect when I got the cable modem. The
first line went bad so the phone company switched to main line to the
second. The service tech told me it was a good thing I had had it
because he may not have been able to use any other lines; old lines and
pretty much used up.
Cell phone is not an option, only signal we get is standing in the
rafter at one end of the house.
Of the advice the internet phone might be an option, if cheap enough.
But this does address the root problem. I need to trim her habit.
Giving in and giving her very own line sends the opposite message.
Equally I need to trim the habit of her friends which is most of the
problem. If anyone knows of parental phone line technology I'm all ears.
