What age is right for a cell phone?
I got mine when I was 16 (25 now) the same age I got my license and my first job. It was a Tracfone and my parents kept just enough minutes to make calls to home, the rest I had to purchase myself. I got a real phone when I went away to school.
I don't have children yet so I guess I can't really answer the question myself, at least not with any level of positivity. I just saw a co-workers 7 year old with an iPhone that she got for christmas and I can't help thinking how ridiculous that seems. I'm not saying 16 is the right answer anymore, and I know each child is different with different activities and schools and such; but what age do you think is definitely too young?
