To young for a cell phone??

I'm considering getting my DS(6) a cell phone for Christmas. He loves using mine and likes texting his grandparents and the rest of our family. It would be a new iPhone and I would stock it full of kid friendly apps. He would not be allowed to take it to school.

What do you ladies think??

Too young. WAY too young.

But whatever, he's not my kid.

Nope not in our home. She will get a cell phone once she turns 13 but it will be a flip phone.

In a world filled with technology as it is and it only having room to expand...I still think a cell phone is too much for a 6 year old. I cringe at the idea, honestly. I don't know why...

Seems a little young to me...my cutoff is usually age 8. But if you think he can be responsible with it...that's up to you.

Strange. I don't see how it's any different from playing with an iPad.

I personally would never allow my children to have any phone unless they were driving, working, or paying for it themselves. Mine are 8 and 5 and they have no reason at all to have a phone.Period.
