up these power apps? kids love to explain and respect them as intelligent person. >> reporter: and of course while you are playing along with their kids you want to monitor the time. and make sure the contents they are using is actually age appropriate. back to you guys. >> dr. adam says he agrees with susan report. he's a child psychologist. he says talking to your kids is one of four things you can do to keep them from getting addicted. thank you for being here. you talk about signing a contract with your kids. this is interesting. explain that. what do you mean? >> well, in essence, like any other parenting decision, you want to layout the basic guidelines, basic expectations what you expect for your kids. like any other parenting decision. we can count off numerous examples of driving, to walking
cars. all this pro-active protection that we provide our kids, laying out the guidelines what to expect gives the kids a road map to get more digital access. >> so perhaps after you do your homework, you are allowed 30 minutes, something like that, and they agree to that so the expectation is there. >> absolutely. where does the phone go at bedtime, or during the car, sleep offers, dinner time, breakfast, all those kind of things. >> i like that now you also talk about family sharing being a good idea. what do you mean by that? >> family sharing is something that apple has created which is a part of the parental control. but doesn't have a lot of press. so when this a child hears about an app on the back of the bus from an older kid, instead of within a couple of seconds having that app on their phone, they have to go through, what should be a simple process, go into the app store and sends a notification to the parent
app or download the app, even if it's free, so the parent can take a quick review, what is this app about, hopefully they'll tell the parent ahead of time, i want to get to the app. so instead of johnny going to a store getting a toy, getting parents credit card, they have to ask for permission. >> and again it forces, in my opinion, as a child psych girks i'm trying to create this child parent dialogue around safe nona addicted smart phone use. >> kids want that. we know kids want guidelines. >> guidelines help all kids. reduces anxiety. less unknown. this is what i'm expected to do when i follow the basic rules i get more of what i want. that is the set up in our society in most aspects. >> and parents have to it be role models too. you point that ouchlt because i can't sit at
get off the phone at dinner. >> thank you. beauty of the contract is once you set off the rules, in essence the child should be following those to get more access, but also the parents should be following basically the rules. yes you are the parent and you don't have to put your phone away at the certain way. you are the parent in charge. but if you are telling your kid not to have phone out eating breakfast and then you are going through work email. they are learning by watching you. that's been the case my whole life at least. >> great ideas. thank you so much, dr. adam. >> thank you. >> thank you. melissa, you know it turns out scaring people is big business. after the break, meet a young man who is paying his way through college with an idea that he came up with in high school.
