Behaviors, privileges and consequences that are important one year might change. The items below are only suggestions to get you started. Specifically state what the privileges and consequences will be when a teen is either following the rules or chooses to break the rules. Contracts may stipulate how much time a teen devotes to schoolwork, and how much access the teen may have to the car. If Johnny is making a contract with Mom, Dad has got to know about it, because otherwise we get into 'divide and conquer. Another approach might be to talk the child about it and facilitate him or her raising enough money to pay the ticket and pay the property damage.
