My sons can get a cell phone when they are responsible teenagers who can either work (part time) to pay their bill...or do enough chores that they can pay out of their allowance. Then theycan choose whatever kind they want

Mine was 14 or 15, and no upgrades unless he's paying for it.

 DS is 7 and has a cheapie prepaid from the dollar store.  He takes it to school and if he leaves the house.  We buy him time but he can either take his chore money to get more if he needs them or save it for something else.

Your TEN year old daughter has a $500 cell phone?? What the fuck for???

My son didn't get one until he was a teenager ... matter of fact, I think he was 17 and it was a Tracfone with limited minutes.

1st grade! I worked and the school sent her home instead of after school care TWICE! What if some psycho would have picked her up at the bus stop? At that moment I realized she needed a phone to call me if it happened again, and unfortunately she had to use it once to call me from the bus when they sent her home for the third time! Needless to say that never happened again because I was pissed off!

Will you be my mommy?? I'd like one (the new one pls ... it is wicked cool) for Christmas. 


I would tell her that she just got that and that she is not getting the new one. Use it as a "don't buy into the gotta have it advertising bullshit" lesson.
