Seems like now a days everyone has a cell phone, and I constantly hear that children having cell phones is a necessity.
Until recent times, everyone managed fine throughout their life not having one- including children, so why is it viewed now as something everyone NEEDS and can't do without?
For thsoe who don't think they are necessary- how do you manage to keep your child safe without constantly texting or talking to them on the phone?

I have a cell for my oldest she is 10. She does not carry it with her all the time, nor does she call and text friends from it. I give it to her when her and her sisters go to the park, or walk to the store. Even though the park is right across the street, and the store is one block away. I feel more comfortable knowing she has it. I also let her use it when she goes to birthday parties, or other get togethers that I will not be at. This way I know I can call her, or she can call me whenever she feels like it without having to ask to use someone's phone.
