Ethan and Emma are in high school and about to be 17 years old. Restricting the amount of time they have on their phones is ridiculous considering their age and maturity, especially down to only one hour for most things. They are almost adults. They are not in elementary/middle school and should not be treated as such. Taking away simple freedoms, such as the ability to fully use their own phones, hurts them more than helps them. It is not teaching them how to be independent, learn from mistakes, and be responsible. By giving freedom on the phone you are allowing them to demonstrate how responsible and mature they are, and learn for themselves. When they are adults in just a year, will they still be restricted? I understand wanting to safeguard and protect them, but they are not learning anything from this. You are not helping them develop independent skills. Give them freedom on their own phones, as they should have.
