       收到妈妈的礼物iPhone5!别急,18条使用条约须遵守!

       Thirteen-year-old Greg Hoffman of Massachusetts in the U.S.A.was delighted toget an iPhone for Christmas,but he was surprised to find out that his momwould be calling the shots on howit was used.

  His mom,Janell Hoffman,included a contract along with the iPhone that listed eighteen conditions or rules that Greg has to follow if he wants to keep it.Some of the rules limit the time he can use the phone:not after7:30p.m.,and he can’t take it to school.He also has to promise not to send“hurtful”text messages and e-mails to people;give his passwords to his parents,and always answer the phone when his mom or dad calls.Greg also has to use his own money to replace the phone if it’s broken or lost.
  Janell says the idea behind the contract is to teach her son to have a sense of responsibility and to learn to“coexist(与……共存)with technology,not be ruled by it.”And she advised him to,“Keep your eyes up.See the world happening around you.Stare out a window.Listen to the birds.Take a walk.Talk to a stranger.Wonder without googling.”
  Since Janell posted the contract on her blog she’s got a lot of support fromparents,but she’s also met with some criticism for trying to be too controlling.It’s a tough call.Everyone has their own ideas on the best way to raise a child and when and how they should start loosening the apron strings.
  Your parents are faced with the same situation.For example,this past Spring Festival many of you received hong bao amounting to thousands of RMB.Did you save the money,give some to charity,or just blow(挥霍)it all?How you used that windfall of cash is a good indication of your sense of responsibility.Hopefully,you used it well but,if you didn’t,it would be understandable if your parents,like Greg’s,kept calling the shots in your life for a little while longer.
