Lots of kids already have cell phones at the age eight or nine. Did you know that about forty five percent of US children of the ages 10 to 12 have a smartphone with a service plan already! That’s crazy!

   Jasmine Victoria replied to the situation saying, “I don’t believe children should have cell phones. For my child, I would let them have a cell phone at the age of 11 years old in the 6th grade. Parents are firm about phone use for there child. Bailey Casanova replied to the response saying, “I would be on and off with my child or children, but I would be harsh on them with phone use.”

Jaden Hughes replied saying, “I don’t believe kids under the age of 10 should have cell phones, but I agree with Jasmine that I would give my child or children a cell phone at the age of 11 years old in the 6th grade.”

Some parents let their child have cell phones under the age of ten.

Anthony Carreno replied saying, “I would not care about having my child have a cell phone.  I would not be strict at all, but i would teach my child the proper way of using a cell phone.”
