Mom's Talk Q & A: How Young is Too Young for a Cell Phone?
The Greenfield and Greendale Mom's Councils weigh in on a parenting topic every week, and you're encouraged to join the conversation.
OK, so last week's Mom's Talk Q & A question was heavy, and judging by the number of comments received, maybe a bit too heavy.
So, this week we're lightening it up a bit, but still asking a question on a lot of parents' minds. We're talking about cell phone usage among teens.
But don't let the Patch editors and Mom's Council members do all the "talking." Jump into the conversation below and give us your thoughts on the topic. Agree with what someone said? Let them know you feel the same way. Disagree in a big way? We want to know that as well.
Don't be shy. Tell us what you think.
This week's question...
How young is too young for a child to have a cell phone? And what kind of parameters should be set when that child gets his/her first phone?
