I AGREE TO THE ABOVE: ___________________________________ Child Sign Here I will help my child follow this agreement and will allow reasonable use of the Internet as long as these rules and other family rules are followed. ________________________________________ Parent(s) Sign Here _________________________________________ Contract Time A contract is used when you suspect your teen is being inappropriate online or violating your home rules. If your teen violates your contract it is automatic revocation of privileges for your determined period of time. Have them sign it. Hang this on the refrigerator. Some Examples of violations: If your teen does not know full information of his buddy. If they X out when you come into the room. If they tell you “you can’t see this it’s private.” If your teen is up late at night past bed time. If they receive money, gift certificates, cameras or scanners that they can’t explain. What is a Buddy List? When looking at your child’s Buddy List your child should be able to tell you who each person is by the screen name. A Buddy List is a list in AIM, AOL, and Yahoo of the common or frequent contacts your child has. If they don’t know them by first, last name and phone number, they should not be on the buddy list. If you don’t know that person neither should they. Some kids lie about who that person actually is and they make it up. Check the Screen names yourself to call their bluff. Why is my teen’s cell phone bill so high? When teens are banned or away from the computer, they use text messaging to IM friends who are on the computer. This is when they could speak to someone you do not want them to talk to. You can check the cell phone account on line and see who they are talking to. Just sign into the cell phone provider online and check the in box and out box.
