Lots of parents are giving their teens the latest and greatest technological devices as gifts this season. However, many teens don’t know how to handle the extra responsibilities that often accompany these privileges. One of the best ways to ensure they understand your expectations is to create a behavior contract.

If your child is receiving a new technological device, whether it’s a smartphone, video game system, computer, or even a TV, make your expectations clear. Establish healthy rules and limits and discuss the consequences for breaking the rules. A behavior contract can be one of the best gifts you can give your child and it may prevent a lot of problems and disagreements that develop from misunderstandings.
