Family Media Agreements / Contracts

A family media agreement is simply guidelines around online and screen use that are in line with your own family values, that everyone (including parents) sign up to.

It is best creating these together as a family, so everyone feels like they have been part of the agreement from the start.

You can create these from scratch or use our PCH pre-written agreements.
All you need to do is fill in the gaps in the agreements or adapt and amend to suit your family’s discussions.

The benefit of starting with these forms is that it provides a framework for you to have further discussions as a family and complete the forms together.
