My oldest two, 13 and 10, have them. They had Fireflies for a year and have had regular cell phones for about 2 years.
old enough to have a job to pay for one
My sd had one at 6.
We've had the rule of no phone until they are 13. Now that I have grandkids, it seems the age is getting younger. I'd say when the child starts spending more time away from home. I do like the idea of being about to reach my child/grandchild anytime no matter where they are.
I will be giving my kids their own phone on their 16th birthday,along with the ever so famous gift,a car.They are only 4 right now and 6 months,so they have a lonnng way to go,lol.
Far from normal.Always am,Always will be.
