September 24, 2013 by Becca 28 Comments If your child is getting their first cell phone or smart phone, you might want a cell phone contract to help lead your discussion about rules and expectations. We had an extra iPhone when Steve upgraded–if Michael was going to keep his regular cell phone, he would need a new one since it was falling apart. Michael is going to get a smartphone within the next few years, like all of the other high schoolers he knows. But sometimes it’s nice to do fun things for your kids when they show responsibility, right? If he’s been responsible thus far and the phone would just be sitting there anyway, why the heck not?! We have him update the contract when he breaks one of the rules – kind of like a reminder for him and a look to see if anything needs to be adjusted. Deciding your child is ready for their first cell phone is a huge decision and if you aren’t feeling confident in that choice, you’ll want to read our post Is Your Child Ready For A Cell Phone? There are a variety of options for phones these days and we analyzed many of them before choosing the phone and plan we did for our teenage daughter. You’ll also need to decide whether or not you want your child to have internet access available from her phone. We chose to give our daughter a phone with wi-fi disabled and she is unable to access the web. We send out our blog posts by email--join today and receive a free SMART Parenting Printable as a Thank You gift! This contract sounds unusually controlling – how are children to grow if you do not give them space to?
I think it’s also important to note that this contract could and should extend to any mobile device. If and when we have kids, we will be sure to lay down some ground rules for their cell phones too! Cell phones were still new enough when my kids were teens that this wasn’t an issue, thankfully.

That means he was managing two expensive pieces of technology (his cell phone and his iPod), which we didn’t think was a great idea for a kid.
Because his current allowance wouldn’t cover the price increase, we added on more chores to his weekly schedule. Michael came up with the ideas for this (he had to come up with this in order to get the smartphone) and I have edited it for the web.
I’m trying to figure out how to instate that now that my kids have had smart phones for a while. With so much to be concerned about in today’s world it is a relief and a privilege to be able to gain useful, reasonable, and useable suggestions!
Think about it this way, do you plan to give your 16 year old, brand new driver a Ferrrari when they receive their license? This is the perfect way to ensure your expectations are clearly outlined and what the consequences will be if they’re not met. It helps clear up expectations and sets the stage for a developmentally appropriately and healthy relationship with technology. Too often teenagers gain an unhealthy obsession with their phones (playing games, browsing the internet, social media etc)..adults too! The students and families we help will really find this useful with their kids as they grow older.


Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag.
Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. We have rules but not like that and I do not pay for chores so I’d have to come up with something.
There are too many temptations for an age group that is already struggling with difficult physical and emotional changes. The purpose of a contract is to outline parameters and specific expectations which when parents are paying for a cell phone, are reasonable in our opinion.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. If he violates any of our contract (see below), the phone is ours until we feel he has earned it back. Allowing her wi-fi was unnecessary because she has opportunities to access the internet for school work on our home computer and check her email there, where we have more supervision. I remember back when the only thing we used phone for were calling, and they were literally the size of a laptop.
That car has too many options and far too much power for a highly under experienced driver. It is also one less thing for us to monitor and an opportunity to prove herself in smaller things before moving on to bigger ones. It is better to provide a less glamorous, safe, steady vehicle at a more reasonable price point. By providing the latest, greatest, most expensive phone on the market, right now an iPhone 6+, you’re giving a Ferrari, and your child is most likely not ready for all the features if offers, nor have they shown they deserve this level of privilege.
