Our kids started a new school. The new school requires me to pick them up, drop them off and they will have several after school activities that well have me frantic that I am going to mess something up. It’s 30 minutes over there. I remember the feeling of my parents being late and me not knowing where they were. So we decided we would get the kids cell phones. I was hesitant, since our son is only 8 – but after much consideration – we decided to move forward with the idea, well under 1 condition. We made the kids sign a kid cell phone contract and had a nice long talk about cell phone safety.
Side note before getting to the phone contract: This is what works for OUR family. I have provided 2 cell phone contract templates. 1 is fill in the blank. You write what works for your family as far as rules for your kids and cell phone usage. The other is the actual contract we had our kids sign. Our kids are 8 and 10-years-old and had no resistance to signing as she knows that the phone is a privilege. I know a few might get a chuckle at how strict we are in regards to the contract, but just remember this is just for our family, you do what works for your’s!
