Plinky asked me, “At what age do you think it’s appropriate for children to get cell phones?”
I am sure I am jealous, but I never got to carry around a phone when I was a child. Sure, it would have been a bit clunky, and I wouldn’t be able to go too far because of the cord and all, but it would have been fun. Well, no, wait. No, it wouldn’t. It was too much fun hearing my mother yelling for me in the neighborhood to come home for dinner. What fun would it be to just hear my phone ringing. Or I’d get a text, “Dinner time.”
Ok, I got off topic. As a fourth grade teacher, I would say that a child should be able to own their own cell phone no earlier than 5th grade.
Oh hell, I don’t know.
