Do you let your child(ren) play games on your phone?

I was going to ask who plays games more on your phone - you or your child. But I thought I would get a lot of "I don't play games on my phone" so I changed my question.

My daughter has her own phone and both kids have a Nintendo DS to play on.  I do not play games on my phone any longer.  I have a Nook and someone game me one of those electronic soltare games that I play on the bus.

Nope.  Because my phone has no games.  It's a very basic pre-paid cell phone that is just used for making phone calls and only when necessary.

DH has a Galaxy, but it's work-issued.  For that reason, the kids have a strict NO TOUCH rule regarding DH's phone.  Even I rarely ever touch it.  It doesn't belong to us so I don't want to mess with it.

If we had our own fancy phones I don't know if I'd let the kids play games on it.  Perhaps once in a while in certain circumstances.  However, it just seems like such an expensive gadget to let a kid have their hands on.  {{shrugs}}

Don't have a phone you can play games on.

Absolutely!!!

When we're waiting in line somewhere, or waiting for ANYTHING, I let them play games, or watch a show/movie... It's a beautiful thing.
