AT WHAT AGE DO YOU THINK ITS APPROPRIATE FOR CHILDREN TO GET CELL PHONES?


CELLPHONE AGE FOR CHILDREN

I WAS DISCUSSING WITH SOME FRIENDS SOMETIME AND THIS QUESTION ABOUT WHEN KIDS SHOULD BE USING MOBILE PHONES CAME UP, AND EVERYBODY HAD THEIR DIFFERENT OPINION AND SOME SAID AGE 12,13,AND 15 RESPECTIVELY, BUT IN REALITY WHAT AGE WOULD A PARENT WANT THEIR KIDS TO USE PHONES?, BECAUSE OF A LOT OF FACTORS LIKE CORRUPTION, DISCUSSING ISSUES NOT RELATING TO EDUCATION, NOT BEING ABLE TO MONITOR THE CHILD EVEN ON PHONE MAKES SOME PARENTS TO BE CAUTIOUS ABOUT WHEN TO ALLOW THEIR KIDS TO USE PHONES.

FOR ME, I THINK USING PHONE FOR CHILDREN DEPENDS ON PARENTS AND THEIR BELIEVES AND OPINIONS, SOME PARENTS DUE TO RELIGION RESTRICT THEIR KIDS FROM USING PHONE UNTIL WHEN THEY ARE 18 AND SOME GIVE THEIR CHILDREN THE PRIVILEGE FROM AGE 11 OR 12 DEPENDS ON HOW SMART AND RESPONSIBLE THEY THINK THE CHILD IS ,SOME PARENTS THINK ITS APPROPRIATE FOR A CHILD TO USE PHONE FROM AGE 12 BECAUSE, WHEREVER THE CHILD IS THEY CAN BE MONITORED .SOME PARENTS LOOK AT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF A CHILD TO GIVE THEM PHONE.

SOME PARENTS HAVE NO CHOICE AS TO WHEN TO GIVE PHONE TO THEIR KIDS DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND THEIR CONTROL, SUCH AS CARRYING PHONE FOR HEALTH REASONS E.T.C. I KNOW OF A PARENT WHO’S CHILD STARTED USING PHONE IN 4TH GRADE WHEN THE CHILD DEVELOPED A MEDICAL CONDITION.THE FRIENDS THOUGHT THEY COULD USE THE PHONE TO CALL FOR HELP ANYWHERE AT THE PLAYGROUND IN CASE OF EMERGENCY.THE AGE THAT I WILL SUGGEST CELL PHONES FOR CHILDREN WOULD BE FROM AGE 12 AND ABOVE.
