Family Media Agreements

If you have ever had the chance to browse through sites promoting online safety, you'll often see the recommendation to have a family media agreement.  Generally, but not always, such agreements are physical documents that everyone signs.  More importantly, however, the media agreement helps parents establish:

  1. Guidelines and expectations for media use
  2. Appropriate behavior online
  3. A checklist to help discuss various topics

The third point, in particular is extremely important.  Because so many excellent family media agreements exist, we've listed a few below for you to choose from:
