Kids these days have a lot to say when it comes to choosing their children‘s bedroom furniture. It seems funny but these little bosses have the power to make their parents fork out hundreds or even thousands of money just to create a unique themed bedroom for them. Well, their parents are just happy to oblige. For them, their little bosses deserve the best things that they can provide.
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.
Add a second closet bar at a lower lever. This second bar can be used to hang additional clothing and can help make it easier for the kids to help put away clothes. Purchase lots of small, sturdy hangers designed to hold children clothes. Pick up any dirty laundry that may be lying around the room. A great way to encourage kids to put their dirty laundry away is placing a basketball hoop over the laundry basket. This way your kids will see putting away the laundry as a fun thing to do.
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.
