I'm so pissed. How dare she. My son is the top of his class. He is GT and is working a grade level ahead of his. He is a very mature and responsible kid. The rules are that he only use his phone at school to use one of the educational apps on it. His teachers are fine with this and even suggested we get him an ipod (we decided the phone would suit him better) to use at school. Some of his classwork involves using one, he was borrowing one from school but it was becoming a hassle for him to have to go check one out daily.
Anyway, I just don't understand his friends mom. I'm sorry if her son has started asking for a phone but that is not my problem. My son spends a lot of school vacations at his grandparents houses out of state. We decided it was a good idea to get him a phone so we can have constant contact with him while he is gone.
I hate the jealousy of some people and making their kids suffer because of it.
