It has long been an established rule that upon arrival at home from school the guys grab a snack, whoever is scheduled for the job feeds/waters the dog, and homework commences. The hard and fast rule you have is that while they can use their laptop for homework, they are not to either use or be on the phone until work is done and, if necessary, checked by you/your SO.

You note that his earbuds are around his neck and ask, "Is your homework done?" To which he replies, "No, I got hung up on a problem and I was going to ask you about it and Ty just called and I picked up, and we worked it out."
Normally, you'd remind him about the no phone rule and then let it go as the call covered homework. Next you ask about the earbuds and he blushes and stammers, "well uh...."
Is he in trouble?
