It has been referred to on many blogs, posted on Facebook, and retweeted on Twitter numerous times. If you have not seen it yet, here is the link:
To My 13 Year Old, an iPhone Contract From Your Mom, With Love
This is such a great idea and I love the many "touchy" subjects she addresses with both humor and love, such as not texting or emailing something you would not say to someones face, no porn, and really thinking about the photos you take. We have a great iPad Agreement we use with our students but some of these ideas really need to be addressed with them in depth also. May be making some revisions for next year!
Sounds like Ms. Hoffman is a really great mom - hope her son appreciates her!
