Even though I do not have a family, I was taking my morning walk and listening to the radio. The DJ was commenting that his daughter’s second grade were on a field trip and some of the kids had cell phones.
How young is TOO young?
Cell Phones should be given to young children IF they are on a trip or away from home and need to call to either be picked up, in danger, or if the parents’ need to call them for an emergency on their end. Once the child comes home, the cell pnone is put away until another event occurs and the child needs to use it again for a reasonable situation. This way, the young child learns that the cell phone is a tool and not a toy and can’t be abused.
IMO teens today may or may not have the discpline in using a cell phone, especially if they are driving! :eek:
So how young is TOO young?
