A formal written contract, by which you & your son agree to abide by the technology rules you have set between you, motivates kids to stick with the rules. Obviously, you can’t be with your child around the clock, so the honor system does come into play; you’ll have to trust them to follow the rules when you’re not around. But making an agreement together and then by generously forgiving, supporting, and cheering him on can give your son the inner strength he’ll need to cut down his technology habit.
