I have tried several parental control apps (Qustodio, Verizon, etc), in an effort to monitor what my kids are looking at on their phones and when, and without fail, they've cracked the code. So, we're trying something different. Whether your child has ADHD or not, there are simple phone contracts, free for download, on this website and I'm thinking it could be a game changer in our house.
My son and I spent an hour or so, at Starbucks going over the terms of the contract which included what times phone usage is restricted, the types of websites he'd visit, caring for the device as well as replacement in the event of an accident, the subject matter in which he'd text friends etc. It was awesome. After stressing the legal ramifications of breaking an agreement after you've signed it was enough to make his pen quiver!
The length of this agreement is one month. If it goes well, we'll plan on an extension! I'll let you know how it goes. Meanwhile, if you have any tips for ME please share!! It takes a village, right?
