Seems a bit absurd to me, but I'm not a parent so I could be wrong.
Of course not. Parents use the emergency excuse to give in to pressure from their kids. How about giving iPads to 3 year olds? Lots of bad parents out there.
Tablets can be educational. I got a free one and my daughter uses it to learn her gazintas.
My cousin is 12 and I dont think she has a phone. Her dad is kinda strict though. She has a tablet and a laptop.
If that's all they are used for. That's how parents talk themselves into it. "The school is using them!" A week later the kid is spending hours a day on it playing video games or watching videos. I'm sure it's nice they don't have to parent.
I don't have any kids, but I do have friends that have kids. Luckily for all of us they are smart enough to realize that kids don't need this shit for a while EXCEPT in the form of a phone that can ONLY call mom or 911. DONE.
Go ahead and text with mom kid. Should be a blast.
They need to learn early how to send pics of their junk to their friends.
My girlfriend needs to
Constantly Monitor her 12 year olds I touch not even a phone, she plays games on line, and these predator make believe "kids" come on line and try to lure kids into chats....
I would NEVER give my kid that access.... Even fantastic parents Can't keep up!
If you think about it, no one needs a cellphone. That being said, when my sperm takes that intended magical journey down the vaginer and a kid results, I'll probably get them a cellphone just to stay in contact with lots of restrictions on it.
I got my 11 yard old son an apple 6s, all his friends have one, plus sometimes we both need to contact each other when he's in school.
My 10 year old has my old flip phone. He doesn't need anything fancy like a smart phone, he has it if he needs to get in touch with us at anytime when he's not home.
And what about this TV I've heard so much about lately, I think it's evil.
No..especially with ipods out there now. My 12 year old nephew and my 9 year old niece both have ipod touches, they can text and facetime audio with me and other family members with apple products as long as they have wifi around, that's all they really need.
I'm not going to lie though, it is very cool to me when my nephew texts me in the middle of a ball game and we talk smack to each other, I love that part of technology..but should he have a full-fledged smart phone to call anyone? HELL no..
Yes. More tv is what modern American children need
How is a kid gonna watch porn without one. I had to whack it to the underwear section of the Sear's catalog.
She goes days without using it.
However, i am sure you wouldn't approve of the past week. She used it a lot to learn her abcs, pop bubbles and watch the occasional video. I was being a crappy parent, yes. But i was busy, what with burying my father and all.
Let's not be so judgey.
I was talking in general. Don't be so sensitive
Two Words: Flip Phones
Do it the same way those of us who came up the hard way did. Go in the forest and look for a thrown away copy of high society
Of course. How else are teachers going to send them nude picture texts?
