Tips For Using The Summer Schedule Chart

  1. It works best to introduce the contract before or when your child gets their first phone. If it's too late, don't worry. You can still introduce and follow the contract.

  2. Walk through the contract with your child, discussing each issue, collaboratively. The contract was intended to generate discussion and to set limits. Your child needs to know that you're listening, just like you need to know they are listening.

  3. When discussing, stress your responsibilities too.

  4. Both you and your child should sign the contract.

  5. Review the contract from time to time to keep it front-of-mind, and make amendments if needed.
