    time they started using public transportation to get around town without us, at about age 13 or so. They've been useful and fun, and the kids have never had trouble recognizing when it's not appropriate to have them turned on or to use them.

    BUT they also didn't go to school (until starting college classes), or to anything else they hadn't chosen to do, for the most part, so they weren't seeking phones or ipods or computers to distract them from something they weren't interested in.
