She is addicted to mobile phones

My sister, who is three years younger than me, is addicted to mobile phones. During her exams her cell phone was taken away from her to help her concentrate on her studies. But she has been a bit upset since then. Please help me to guide her.

Dear Sushant, your sister, who is 15 years old, is addicted to mobile phones, as nowadays many teenagers are, neglecting more important things, for example their studies. Your parents have done well in taking her cell phone away during her exams. Do not worry if she is “a bit upset since then” because she has to learn to fix her priorities in life. Hopefully, in a few years time she will understand and thank you for teaching her a useful lesson.
