The smartphone contract every girl should sign

 
One lucky 13-year-old boy got an iPhone for Christmas. But it certainly was not without limitations. Wrapped up with the phone, was a contract written out by his mom (pretty much the savviest mom ever, we gotta say) with the rules he had to follow in order to keep using the phone.
 
Originally, we were gonna pick out our favorite rules and include them below. But ya know what? This contract is jam-packed with things we think ever tween and teen smartphone user should abide by, so here are our top-three picks. We urge you to click through to see the full contract, available at HuffingtonPost.com, and hey, why not print out a copy, sign your name at the bottom and hand it to your 'rents? That's a pretty awesome New Year's resolution in our book.
 

9. Do not text, email, or say anything to someone that you would not say out loud with their parents in the room. Censor yourself.


11. Turn it off, silence it, put it away in public. Especially in a restaurant, at the movies, or while speaking with another human being. You are not a rude person; do not allow the iPhone to change that.
 

14. Leave your phone home sometimes and feel safe and secure in that decision. It is not alive or an extension of you. Learn to live without it. Be bigger and more powerful than FOMO (fear of missing out).

 
Read the whole thing right here and tell us which cell phone rule you always follow, no matter what.
