WHAT'S THE BEST AGE TO GET YOUR CHILD A MOBILE PHONE?
The reason most parents give young children phones is to keep in touch at all times. Some parents give phones to kids from when they are 8 years old, others wait until these kids are teenagers. For my family, we wait until Secondary School. In Primary School, you use mummy's phone for all communications with friends and classmates. For some families, the child has to get to Senior Secondary School before owning a phone, for some families, getting University Admission or any
Tertiary Institution is the right time because, here the young adult is gaining Independence and going to be away from family for longer periods. Every family have their reasons for delay or not when it comes to mobile phone parenting.
When do you think a child is ready to have their own phones?
