What do you think about kids answering the phone?

Just wondering....when you call to talk to your friend and their child picks up do you think it's cute..... or annoying?

  • It's cute as long as I'm not stuck on the phone with the kid too long, lol.

    My oldest boy (5 1/2) answers the phone only when daddy is on the line and I'm in the shower. He always asks permission first.

  • Its ok if they have been taught manners and the proper way to answer the phone. If they are too young and can barely put together sentences then I think its silly and annoying.

  • I dont let my young children answer the phone. It could be someone I dont want to talk to at that moment. If I dont appear to hear the phone my older kids will yell to me & ask if they should answer it. It's kind of annoying to me when I call someone, a young child answers & then just puts the phone down & wanders off (had it happen more then once!)

  • If they can answer politely and turn the phone over, great. If they can take a message, better. I don't think kids answering the phone for fun is cute. I also hate it when the person I am talking to interrupts our conversation to address the kid that is interrupting our conversation with rediculous questions.

  • Usually annoying. Young kids usually don't know how and older kids usually sound bored or angry that you aren't the person they were expecting.
