Social media contract for parents and teens


Published on

Worried about your child's social media activities? Consider a social media contract between you (as the parent) and your child. This is an example contract that you can modify for your family's needs. Before your child starts using Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other social networks, be sure to spell out exactly how you want your child to use social media. The contract includes posting guidelines, consequences, and "rules for the road" - all to keep your teen safe while using social media.
