Earlier this week, in Wellesley, Massachusetts, Paul Baier made a deal with his 14-year-old daughter Rachel. If she quit Facebook completely until the end of June, he'd pay her $200. She gets $50 in mid-April and the other $150 on June 26th.
--They even signed a contract. On the part of the contract where Rachel says how she'll use the money, she wrote, quote, "stuff."
--Paul says this was Rachel's idea. Quote, "She wants to earn money and also finds Facebook a distraction and a waste of time sometimes." But she does plan to get back on Facebook once the five months are over.
