Creating a Media Use Agreement

It is imperative that parents sit down with their children to have a two-way conversation about their use of digital media. It’s important for your children to know your concerns, how many hours of allotted time is permitted, as well as appropriate guidelines for their digital consumption. Be sure to respect your child’s feelings, and to come to an agreement that is less a demand, and more of a mutually agreed upon decision.

An excellent printable contract is available through Common Sense Media, and provides a comprehensive and fair contract that still respects your child’s space and privacy.
