Transcript of Top 10 Tips for Parents for kids to be Smart with their Smartphones

Step 1- Agree Upon Boundaries
Teaching Your Child to be Smart With Their Smartphone
Set clear boundaries and consequences about smart phone use.
Open communication is key before allowing your child to have a cell phone.
Together create a written agreement outlining your expectations. This will counter problems later on.
Teach your child what is acceptable to send in terms of pictures and text.
All personal information stays private. Teens need to think about where it could end up and protect themselves.
Case in point: employers are now asking for Facebook names and passwords in interviews.
Step 2 - Protecting Your Child
Step 3 - Smart Places
Step 4
Be Careful Who You Trust
Step 5- Multitasking is a Myth
Step 6 - Be A Good Example
Step 7 - Use it to Your Advantage!
Step 8 - Embrace the Good
Step 9 - Say Goodnight
Step 10 - Exercise Your Rights
Teach your child the etiquette of when and where phone use is acceptable.
Cell phone use is not allowing inside of school buildings, and it is against the law to text and drive.
In many other locations, including restaurants, churches, and work places, phones should not be used.
Teach your child to question who they are talking to.
Tell your child that passwords are private and no one else needs to know
There is no such thing as multitasking.
When students switch quickly from homework to texting, the learning suffers.
Students should keep the phone out of sight when completing homework.
The single most effective way to teach your children to be smart about their Smartphones is to be a good example.
Parents can use filters for what children can download to their phones.
You can regulate your child's number of calls and text messages.
You can monitor a child’s whereabouts through built-in GPS systems.
Realize that there are great ways for students to learn and communicate.
Texting so no one gets lost, using GPS and maps while travelling, researching information, and educational applications are all beneficial for your child.
Put cell phones away at night because you don't want your child to text in the middle of the night.
Have them 'check in' their cellphone to you before bedtime.
Turn off your wifi as well!

Don’t forget to remind your child that owning or using a cell phone is a privilege not a right
As long as you are paying the bills, you are entitled to call the shots!
