Family phone pledge

January 27th, 2017

Pledge for kids and teens

When it’s dangerous to do so, I will not touch or look at my phone, such as while driving, biking or walking.

Be considerate of others and not use my phone to text or talk when it may disturb others or at inappropriate times or places, such as in class or theaters.

Take care not to damage or lose my phone and will let my parents know right away if it is damaged, lost or stolen.

I will only use apps from legitimate app stores (like the Apple App Store or Google Play) and do a little research to make sure they’re appropriate and safe to use.

I will carefully review the privacy policies of any apps I use including what information the app collects or shares.

Sharing location with family or friends from the real world is my proper way of using apps.

My phone usage will not interfere with sleep, schoolwork or other important activities.

Respecting my own and other people’s privacy in pictures and posts that I share will be top priority.

Sharing pictures and videos where everyone is appropriately dressed and avoiding sharing any images that could embarrass me or others or get anyone in trouble will be a rule.

Treat others respectfully and with kindness in what I post, what I text and how I interact socially.

Parents’ pledge

Being a good role model and never text or use apps while driving or during other activities where phone use might be dangerous.

A conscious attitude of being considerate of others, including my family members, by refraining from using the phone when it might disturb people around me.

Talking with my kids and set reasonable expectations about their smartphone use.

I will be considerate of my child and not text him or her at inappropriate times, such as while he or she is in class.

Taking  appropriate steps of discipline if I feel my child has misused his or her phone or broken a family rule, but I will be thoughtful about such actions and not overreact.
