Baby chewing everything

Sorry to post again! Ella is about 6 months old, and likes to chew on almost everything. It makes it hard for me to have her out with me while I play video games, study, or do anything with something in my hands. She refuses to be on a stand, and wants to be on me, but then she chews on what is in my hand lol. I've tried replacing what's in my hand with shredding/chewing toys, but that usually only lasts for a minute or two! Today she got a hold of my phone and wouldn't let go, which ended up breaking the screen protector on the bottom I half assumed that, like a puppy, she's exploring everything with her mouth and she'll grow out of it. Is this true?
Thanks

Yes and no. She is exploring Everything with her beak as you said, I remember Melody being like that when she was young. With her, it decreased as she got older, but it never completely goes away. Parrotlets have so much energy it's really hard to do any sitting activities with them on you and them not wanting to be in whatever you do. I don't really have any suggestions for that, out if my three Parrotlets who are very different, Melody is the one that has to be watched like a hawk or she will get in trouble when she's out... if she's not finding trouble she's stuck to you like glue and in whatever your doing. My other two will chill out on top​ if their cage with supervision but I didn't really "train" them to do that. I have never been successful​ at achieving this with Melody, it's just how she is. But she's also the most fun.

tijya will become famous soon enough

Our first parrotlet would get into trouble like Melody. She loved shredding toilet paper rolls.

Our current guy is less adventurous. He usually stays in the living room and only comes to the kitchen if we are eating. He's never flown upstairs on his own.

But he still chews things. Loves to chew paper. Since he doesn't like hands, he's not after our fingers when we are typing or gaming though, so that's kind of nice.
