Children and Cell Phones

Does Your Child Carry a Cell Phone?

When I taught elementary aged girls, I was surprised by how many of them carried a cell phone. They usually fit into one of two categories — financially well off or latch key kids. The majority of the former group had them for social reasons while the latter kept them for security purposes.

As concerns continue to pop up about the safety of such gadgets, I have to wonder how many parents are arming their tots with the handy devices. Does your tot have her or his own cell?
