Start the conversation

The best way to get started with Smart Kids, Dumb Phones is to talk to other parents. Discuss which rules you might like to follow and how you'll manage them with your child. You may be fortunate enough to know parents who are ahead of you that can give valuable insights. If you're the first in your group of friends - be brave! Talk the rules through with someone you trust and decide what you're going to do and when.

When you're ready to tackle the conversation with your family, you might consider using our family discussion pack to explore your family values about devices.
