Poll on Cell Phones For Kids

Does Your Child Have a Cell Phone?

Call me! Text me! Tweet me! If you're used to hearing those phrases in front of school you aren't alone. Twenty percent of children between six and 11 years old had a cell in 2009, according to a Mediamark survey and that number has only increased. Cell phones certainly streamline family communication, but the question of whether or not children should carry their own cells is a common one. Do your children have their own phone?

I think a lot of factors come in to getting a cell phone. Need (is the child ever away from a parent and in a position where they are w/o an adult), maturity (will they keep track of it?). My youngest got her phone at 9, and as predicted by me (I did not purchase it) she promptly lost it. Think she's on phone number 3 now. She really does not need it, and was bored with it after about a month.
