Why use a contract? A contract is an unsuscited way for parents to clearly communicate expectations of children and to give children information on how they want to carry out their tasks and manage their responsibilities. Use these printable contracts to work on behavior at home. NOTE: For the safety of all involved, police should be called for all violent episodes by the teen with the intent to injure a family member or destroy property belonging to other family members. The violence, which has no consequences, will intensify further and could eventually lead to a serious incident, so this type of behaviour must be stopped immediately by allowing the adolescent to have serious consequences on the violent behaviour (police, charge and possible hearing).
