Rules a mom gave her son when she gave him an iPhone for his birthday...

GwynethJones's curator insight, February 2, 10:32 AM

This is just brilliant. Though gee, mom...Hot Damn?

Also, in our school you can bring your phone  and use it during transitions, lunch, & recess.

It's an evolving digital world out there - and yeah...rules need to be put down for the kiddos - every parent and school should negotiate those that are most resasonable - but I think we need to always keep TRUST at the center!


We Trust you to make good choices. Until you disapoint us - and then we will CRUSH YOU WITH PETTY RESTRICTIVE RULES!!! Muuwaaa.


Kidding. We need to be proactive and not reactive!
