There are dozens of online family contracts available from various organizations that are concerned with family internet safety. Here is the one that I’ve developed for Sensible Cyber Parenting. It contains common sense guidelines about all areas of internet safety not only the ones to keep your family safe, but also to keep your devices safe from malware and scams so you don’t need The Computer Monkey to rescue your computer. Whether you use the SCP Family Contract, one from another website or make up your own. I encourage you to establish this type of agreement with your kids as soon as they reach the appropriate age. The earlier you establish your family’s rules about technology the better so that it becomes a routine part of your “house rules”.
