[…] think you have a deal on Instagram tween? A great idea to […] In a recent survey of young people, 4% of young people admitted to using their smartphone during the journey. But I`m pretty sure the “no text and no driving” clause is in all teen smartphone contracts. If you read the statistics on youth car wrecks related to distracted driving or if you listen to the daily drama of cyber-harassment, do you think that none of the teenagers involved have signed contracts on smartphones? Is your child a tween or teenager who can resist all temptations and keep the contract? The temptation of smartphone interactions and distractions is too great to control most teenagers. That`s a great idea! I also have a tween daughter, it`s a scary world in which we live, but under God`s guidance, we`re going to make them live a life that pleases them!! Thanks for sharing Amanda. What do smartphone contracts promise? And what do they deliver? They promise that because you have signed an agreement, your children use their smartphones in a balanced way and know how to keep themselves online safely. But in my experience, contracts do not provide anything of that security and balance. Let`s talk about why. Make your “absolutes” clear. These are the rules that will never change.
They are the limits that apply to the safety of your teens. The limits they cannot cross. For example, driving in the event of a disability, the passenger of an affected driver and drug use. With the treaty change, non-negotiable rules remain. It is the basic foodstuffs that remain independent of your evolutionary agreement. To ensure that (the name of the tween) fully understands the requirements of its tasks, (Parents` names) take the time to show exactly how tasks should be completed, and give feedback when (the name of the tween) has completed a mandatory task. In addition, (parent names) will provide all cleaning products and other tools necessary for completed tasks. I love it. My tween is addicted to Instagram and it has put her in trouble several times. Plan to share this.
A model of agreement that allows for effective discipline and adolescent growth. My 12-year-old was begging, begging… for an Insta account. “All” their friends have one (no, but it doesn`t matter). “Insta” in the world of tween is very different from Instagram in my world as a mother-friend blogger. That is what I have. And after a lot of thought and reflection, we decided to open an account for our daughter… With the agreement it would sign, would respect and abide by some rules. She says I`m a little harsh, but I take it as a compliment in this world: “Let your daughter do what she wants.” I LOVE THIS contract. My friend has a daughter from Tween whose birthday list contains an iPod touch and a cell phone. He`s really in touch with things like Instagram and Twitter, and what`s really going on in a tween girl`s head, so I can`t wait to print that out for him. Could you really trust them with the keys to your shiny new sports car because they signed a contract not to exceed the speed limit? Your car insurance doesn`t trust them to sign and keep a contract, and you shouldn`t either.
Hiding their actions and lies are also common behaviors at this point that eventually, believe it or not, they don`t want to hurt their parents with disappointment. Don`t expect a tween or teenager to act like an adult. A choral contract is also an adult process that can make Tweens feel more like adults and encourage them to assume their responsibilities.
