I was reading the posts about the teacher who took the cell phone and then lost it or it was stolen, and I was SHOCKED at the amount of moms who felt the kid shouldn't have had the cell in the first place.
For me, my kids will have cells and will be taking them to school from an early age (3rd or 4th grade at least). I see it as a safety issue. We have school shootings, rapes, beatings and more going on in schools and kids need to call for help in these situations, and running to the office to get a phone isn't always an option...
And that's not even taking all the things that could happen on their way to or from, or while they are with their team or band group or at a friends house... Cell phones save lives... Do I think a kid should be sitting in class chatting it up? NO. But, that doesn't mean they shouldn't have them... I think to deny them that is to deny them any form of safety in an emergency...

What did you do when you were a child? We used payphones. I don't know where you live but there are no more payphones in this city.
