You can make a difference. You can say yes to waiting. 


take THE PLEdgE 

By signing the pledge, you promise not to give your child a smartphone until at least 8th grade as long as at least 10 families total from your child’s grade and school pledge.  If you would like your child to have a basic phone that just calls and texts, you still can sign the pledge! The basic phone avoids many of the distractions and dangers of the smartphone. 

Once 10 families have pledged, you will be notified that the pledge is in effect! Wait Until 8th will email you and the other parents who have signed from your grade to let you know the families on board the active pledge for your child's grade. This helps you to support one another. There is strength in numbers!
