I am debating on getting my 10 year old a pre-paid phone. She earns an allowence from me and other people for work she does and really wants to get one. I was thinking a very simple, cheap phone with a pre-paid plan.
I am just having a hard time coming up with reasons she needs one. If your 10 year old has one, why? I need convincing it is a good thing to get her.
I would be especially interested in hearing from moms that DO allow thier children around this age to have a cell phone and/or DO have children this age as I was always anti-cell until she was 16 as well, but now, I see it as not such a big deal and can see some pros.
