    Suggested Routines and Expectations for Home

    Have a clear, designated spot in the kitchen, office, or living room for your child's device to charge.

    Have your child plug it in immediately when they get home from school or practice.

    After completing homework, have your child plug the device back in and keep it there overnight.

    Keep the device in a central family location and not in the child's bedroom.

    Establish expectations and parameters for the use of the device.

    Increase your child's independence as they demonstrate increased responsibility.

    Have your child routinely check for all materials (especially their device) before leaving for school
