House Rules - Hailey

Author Keisha Cosand
Fountain Valley, California


Time: Present                                 

Situation: Hailey is a ten year-old-girl who is sitting at the kitchen table with her parents.  Her mom and dad have just told her all the reasons she cannot have her own cell phone and what the house rules are concerning technology.

Subject Matter: Technology, Kids, Parents, Cell Phones, Computers, Restrictions, Rules, Exasperation, Frustration, Negotiation

Note from Playwright: I wrote this because I have adolescent daughters, and as a parent, I'm worried about them having too much technology, but the rules seem to be getting out of hand.
