,, baAIt is important that you and your children take the time to discuss this, not just look at the contract and then sign it. This is a tool to help you protect them.
In case you are not available for them or in case they want to talk to someone else other than you regarding any ‘scary’ topic, you and your child should make a list of alternative trusted adults (that you both trust) that will be a ‘safe’ place for them to talk about difficult subjects.
Any and all points can be change to suit your individual home, rules or family situation. For example the last point might read I will not have any social media without my parents permission. Some of you may feel it is ok to have social media, but in case you have not watched about the almost 18 year old boy who committed suicide within 6 hours of send a nude picture on instagram, I encourage you to watch it.

Disclaimer: This contract will not guarantee that your child will not misuse the cell phone or that they will follow these rules.

Please email us at [email protected] if you have any suggestions that should be used on this contract.
