Quick Poll: At what age do you think it's appropriate to give a child a phone?

At what age do you think it's appropriate to give a child a phone? I have a responsible almost 15 year old but my 13 year old has already had 3 chances for doing off limit things. Please comment below.

  1. My husband and I have decided that we would get a cell phone for our children between 10 and 12, but that it would not be a smart phone -- so no internet access, just texting and calling. When they are old enough to get a job and are responsible enough, then we will give them a little more freedom.

  2. I have thought about the same thing. We got her a phone yesterday I guess none of the cellular plans now do not come with just calling features. I have been trying to find a good parental control app that was free but was good.

  3. They do have pre-paid options instead of a plan that you can get a basic cell phone with. I think Walmart has some and, if I remember correctly, T-Mobile or AT&T has some basic call/text phones.
