I have this question and I would like your opinion. At what age is it appropriate to allow a child to have his/her own cell phone. My two older children are in 1st and 2nd grade and a lot of their friends have cell phones. Maybe I am crazy, but why do 6,7,and 8 year olds need cell phones? Am I off base? Is there someone they need to call? Am I missing a safety issue ?
My kids (especially my daughter) keep bringing up that this person or that person has a cell phone like I am going to say ,"Oh yeah! Let's get you one." Well, right now I can not see a reason for them to have a cell phone for a very long time.
Please help out on this one. What do you think?
