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.
If there‘s a bedroom furniture piece that deserves to be called an ingenious creation, it‘s the kid‘s bunk beds. These beds have provided answers to the space issues that confronted so many parents for years. It‘s undeniable that children get crammed into small bedroom spaces. Equipping their bedroom with two separate beds will instantly obliterate the space that could be assigned for study desks or dresser units.
Does your child try to do the best they can, or do they tend to give up when it gets tough? By having a cell phone a child will need to be able to stand up to other kids in case of bullying. If they tend to roll over and give up on tasks that seem hard they probably won‘t be able to say "No, you cannot borrow my cell phone". If you have assigned chores for them do they actually do it without you reminding them? A reminder now and then is okay, but if you have to constantly be on top of them to do what they are suppose to do doesn‘t pass the test.
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.
