Children's Cell Phone Use on the Rise

Children Carrying Cell Phones on the Rise

Is your child reachable at all times? A new study says there's a good chance he is. According to Mediamark Research and Intelligence, one in five children between the ages of 6-11 carries a cell phone. That number has nearly doubled over the past five years with boys accounting for a significant portion of the increase.

When we asked our readers about their views on the mobile phones a year and a half ago, half of LilSugar readers said their tots didn't carry one. As the world continues to shift to more mobile means of communication, and as more parents see the device as a means for providing their tykes with more freedom, many mamas are shifting their views on the lil pieces of technology and opting for phones that they can control.

Have you changed your view on giving your child a cell phone?
