does your child have one? how old are they? it seems to be the "norm" these days and if you don't have one you are teased or not as cool. I think its a good idea ONLY for the fact of being able to contact them at any time vice-versa. How young is to young to have one??

My kids are 17, 10 and 8 and don't have one. We as a family don't have cell phones and if my children do want one, then can get a job when they hit working age and pay for it themselves. I don't find them necessary what so ever and in fact, blame them for the dumbing down of America- people can't even take a crap without texting- it's annoying as hell. Also, I see no reason that a child should have one just to be able to contact a parent- a young child should always have a parent or guardian with them.

we gave our 8 and 9 year old kids a cell phone to see how it would be. the 8 year old would always loose it and the 9 year old was sending pictures of her self (not in a nasty way just throwing peace and such) and texting. we just did not think it was right so we took both of there phones away i think they just did not need them at all. If they were in sports or school events i would just keep one handy just in case I would need to let them use it so i can get ahold of them. When i was younger I did not have a phone and there was no problems at all so I really don't think it is a necessity for them.
