I have to laugh and nod my head at your rules for giving kids cell phones. Here are my house rules for giving a child a phone.
- Rule #1 "When you can afford one"
- Rule #2 "Phone only, NOTHING else"
You stated if there was a serious illness, maybe then. I was diagnosed Type 1 diabetic in 1960 at age 5. As I recall I got my first cell phone in the late '90's and I survived just fine!
