Remember to tie those consequences back to the privilege of having a cell phone. I have found when you involve your child in making the rules it is easier for them to keep the rules and they tend to remember them. Keep in mind some kids can take the care needed to handle the responsibilities of a cell phone, but others may not be ready. Cell phones are not for everyone. Examine your motives for giving your child a cell phone; it may be more for your comfort than for your child.
Kids by nature are really playful, and usually they tend to run around their bedroom which can eventually damage the furniture one they hit it, especially when the one you bought is not that quality made. Investing is by purchasing items that are a bit pricey yet can last you a long time and can stand against or resist those damages due to impact. Even when your kid like something that is not really good, be firm in deciding and picking the one you think is better because they still do not understand the importance of things like money. Do your best to explain why you‘re picking one over the other.
While I was talking with a friend‘s ten year old daughter she told me how she needs a cell phone. Having a pretty good relationship with her I knew this girl was not a very responsible person. She‘s a smart girl. But she‘s like most ten year old kids; she just doesn‘t take care of any of her toys or clean her room, and very often doesn‘t turn in her homework.
Do they clean their bedroom when asked? This would be an expectation to having a cell phone. Does your child do their homework and follow through and actually turn it in? These are basic instructions that need to be followed. One of the reasons homework is given is to teach kids at a young age to be responsible. How are their grades? Are their grades at an acceptable level for their abilities? Grades were the one thing I tie to whether my son could play any sports, or driving. These types of things are privileges not rights for kids.
