Ok I have a 9 yr old daughter & she is CONSTANTLY whining about wanting her own cell phone because a great deal of her friends (for whatever reason) have their own cell phones. Personally, this makes no sense to me. Why anybody would give a child at this age a cell phone is beyond me, but I guess some parents have their own reasons for doing this. In my opinion, I think even a 12-13 yr old is still too young for their own phone. But that's just me. The only way my daughter would be getting a phone is if she was atleast 15-16 & involved in sports or other extra curricular activities where I would need to get ahold of her. I think giving a kid a cell is just asking for trouble as far as texting, sending naked photos & that sort of thing.
Moms, what is your opinion on this??

My DH is a tech junkie. He believes in an early introduction to technology and all its conveniences. My DD is a year and he already has computer games for her. His phone (omnia) basically does everything but launch satellites. He thinks it important to understand how to get the most from you gadgets. So she will probably have a kid cell phone by 4...and if not, I'm sure she will no how to call various people without help from an adult.
