  • 13 year old signs contract with Mom for new IPhone

    Posted by Dan Stone

     

    Here's a contract one mother put together for her 13 year onld son who got an IPhone. Good idea?

    1. It is my phone. I bought it. I pay for it. I am  loaning it to you. Aren't I the greatest?

    2. I will always know the  password.

    3. If it rings, answer it. It is a phone. Say hello,  use your manners. Do not ever ignore a phone call if the screen reads "Mom" or  "Dad." Not ever.

    4. Hand the phone to one of your parents promptly at  7:30 p.m. every school night and every weekend night at 9:00 p.m. It will be  shut off for the night and turned on again at 7:30 a.m. If you would not make a  call to someone's land line, wherein their parents may answer first, then do not  call or text. Listen to those instincts and respect other families like we would  like to be respected.

    5. It does not go to school with you. Have a  conversation with the people you text in person. It's a life skill. *Half days,  field trips and after school activities will require special  consideration.

    6. If it falls into the toilet, smashes on the ground,  or vanishes into thin air, you are responsible for the replacement costs or  repairs. Mow a lawn, babysit, stash some birthday money. It will happen, you  should be prepared.

    7. Do not use this technology to lie, fool, or deceive  another human being. Do not involve yourself in conversations that are hurtful  to others. Be a good friend first or stay the hell out of the  crossfire.

    8. Do not text, email, or say anything through this  device you would not say in person.

    9. Do not text, email, or say anything to someone that  you would not say out loud with their parents in the room. Censor  yourself.

    10. No porn. Search the web for information you would  openly share with me.  If you have a question about anything, ask a person  -- preferably me or your father.

    11. Turn it off, silence it, put it away in public.  Especially in a restaurant, at the movies, or while speaking with another human  being. You are not a rude person; do not allow the iPhone to change  that.

    12. Do not send or receive pictures of your private  parts or anyone else's private parts.  Don't laugh. Someday you will be  tempted to do this despite your high intelligence.  It is risky and could  ruin your teenage/college/adult life.  It is always a bad idea.   Cyberspace is vast and more powerful than you.  And it is hard to make  anything of this magnitude disappear -- including a bad  reputation.

    13. Don't take a zillion pictures and videos. There is  no need to document everything.  Live your experiences. They will be stored  in your memory for eternity.

    14. Leave your phone home sometimes and feel safe and  secure in that decision. It is not alive or an extension of you. Learn to live  without it. Be bigger and more powerful than FOMO (fear of missing  out).

    15. Download music that is new or classic or different  than the millions of your peers that listen to the same exact stuff.  Your  generation has access to music like never before in history.  Take  advantage of that gift.  Expand your  horizons.

    16. Play a game with words or puzzles or brain teasers  every now and then.

    17. Keep your eyes up. See the world happening around  you. Stare out a window. Listen to the birds. Take a walk. Talk to a  stranger.  Wonder without googling.

    18. You will mess up.  I will take away your  phone. We will sit down and talk about it.  We will start over again. You  and I, we are always learning.  I am on your team.  We are in this  together.
