- As Joel's children got a little older and got their first cell phone, he developed a contract to use with each of them. From time to time, others asked for a copy to use with their kids. Now, we've updated that and are making it available for you. This contract is a great way to teach your children the boundaries you desire for the use of their phone, and your expectations for their conduct relating to it. This contract is not legally binding and cannot be used in court, but we think it can be very beneficial to ensure parents and children are on the same page when it comes to their mobile phones. To access this free to use contract, request a copy here.

This document allows you to list important information such as the location of the will, as well as key asset information about financial accounts, other assets, debts, important health information, and more.
