Somehow I found out that my 15 year old has a smart phone, he locks himself a lot in his bedroom . Hes withiut a yashiva , hes begging to go back to a very frum yashiva. How does this add up or go together??!! How can I approach him eith this??

There is something called a J phone which is a “kosher” smartphone. It doesn’t have access to Internet besides for some apps that are Kosher like , Waze, Torah anytime, Jewish music stream etc.
Did you check, maybe he got himself such a phone ? That’s what my son got himself when he bought himself a phone without our knowledge. I was happy to know he made such a choice.

Unfortunately, it goes very well. He is aware that he is slipping down a slippery slope, and knows he needs help to stop it.

Why is he out of yeshiva? Is it because of the phone?

No it doesn’t have either of these options. Only access to a few Jewish apps and some games. There is no other internet access otherwise and no video either. It’s disabled.

This isn’t a solution, he will just use it on the outside. I’d say consult with a rov and therapist about how best to handle this delicate situation. Hatzlacha.
