The Cell Phone Dilemma: When Is The Ideal Age To Give Kids Their First Device?
As a mother of three, I've got quite a bit of mom knowledge under my belt, but I still do not vow to know everything. I mean, almost but not quite. (I kid, I kid) I have a mom group to whom I reach out for advice and vice versa. It is extremely important to have a good circle of friends you can reach out to for a little help from time to time. Trust me when I say I do.
WHAT AGE IS A GOOD AGE TO GIVE KIDS THEIR 1ST CELLPHONE?

All respectable, valid reasons and I will say that in our household, it is typically jr high age when our children begin to play school sports and need a phone to call for a ride that they can have a cell phone.
Perhaps this is a question you have been mulling over in your household? These are merely, (hopefully) helpful suggestions.
