Are you thinking about giving your kid their first own mobile device?
Are you having a hard time dealing with your kid's phone obsession?
Are you worried about what your kid may encounter online?

Then it’s a good time to start a conversation with your family about healthy online use and set boundaries around their online life and device usage. Rules you all agreed on will help your kid to develop healthy digital habits, learn good online etiquette, and be informed about the risks (and how to avoid them).

Our free Ohana Family Tech Agreement provides you with possible talking points to use the conversation as a teaching moment for your family. You can then fill out a checklist together to set clear expectations for positive and safe technology use.
