Jamillah Knowles for The Next Web:
Smart mom, Janelle Burley Hofman has published a document that may secure you a full-on teenage eye roll, but it could also help young ones learn to be responsible. Amusingly it’s not just a few core principles, but an 18 point contract for her 13-year-old son Gregory to adhere to as the lucky recipient of an iPhone.
As a former teenager I bristle at some of this stuff, but as the parent of two teenagers and a tween I can’t help but admire Janelle’s thoroughness here. Really well-thought out, reasonable guidelines for a kid getting their first phone.
What do you say – is she being reasonable by making him stick to these rules?
