Technology Contracts for Kids

Many parents find it helpful to have a contract with their tween and teen age children over the use of technology, especially when it comes to smartphones.  Brookwood School does not favor one contract over another.  Indeed, what may work well with one family may not work well with another.  We offer the links and contracts below as choices from which parents can select and review.

Here is a contract that was provided to us from a Brookwood parent in 2017.

One of the most "famous" contracts was one written by Janell Burley Hofmann in 2013 for her 13 year old son.  It went viral at the time!
