  •  OK I get giving 8 year olds phones for emergencies (12+ / 0-)

    but it appears most of them use it for social media.  Why does an 8 year old need social media?  In our family, an 18 month old was recently purchased a phone, which I cannot fathom

    •  I wonder if the parents giving young (6+ / 0-)

      children cell phone are comfortable with the lack of unanimity about cell phone radiation as a contributing factor for cancer.

    •  Entlod, my 2 daughters have cell phones...BUT (3+ / 0-)

      only the cheap throw away phones. Only enough minutes for a few calls/texts. It is for emergencies, they walk to school and too many kids go missing. That said, my oldest (15) has facebook page but her phone won't let her access so she has to wait until she gets home to use. My youngest I am 'considering' whether she will get to have a facebook page...she turns 13 soon so maybe...
      In my opinion, an 8 year old does NOT need social media.
      I also helped my oldest with her page and friend-ed myself and as many family members as possible to keep eyes on her. She has health ed now and her teacher saw her kiss her boyfriend and was all over the don't text photos to him, no PDA, you never know who will see what.
      She told me that and my reaction was, well, you send him a racey photo and his cousin comes over and sends it off as a 'joke', do you really want to go there?
      She kinda get's it...
      Peace and Blessings!
