ExperianScaresCthulhu: When it comes to protecting your child, then yes your child doesn't really need a cell phone except the most basic model with GPS so you can keep track of where your child (or at least, where your child's phone) is.


FTFY. Conditioning your child to an electronic leash is not doing them any favors.

If the kid needs a cellphone, have texting disabled and/or have a phone that doesn't do text and/or pictures like the old people and kid phones that are out there.

It's common anymore - all the parents insisting they have to be able to contact their kids at all times. Apparently calling the principal's office and having their kids paged is no longer sufficient.


Not that - the other way around. Parents get their children cell phones so the child can call the parent if they miss the bus, after practice ends, etc. And for the parent to call and get the kid to come home for dinner, etc.

My niece got her phone when she was 9 - they sell basic models and you set up speed dial for mom's phone, dad's phone, home, and that's it. Then lock down all the other features. You only need to worry when they get old enough to figure out how to unlock it again.

I've seen several elementary school age children walking out of school with cell phones. It's not particularly uncommon these days. I still don't generally approve of the idea of giving a kid a cell phone. The kid should be probably at least old enough that they'd have potential extracurricular activities to be concerned with. So, at least middle school age.

If and when my kid gets a cell phone when they're still a minor, it will be prepaid (with increase of time maybe on a monthly or quarterly basis) and if they run out of minutes, they'll have to pay for it themselves. I worked in a call center doing customer service for AT&T wireless for a couple years some time back. From that experience, I would say a cell phone is a bad idea for a kid.

Also, why do you have to have tabs on your kid every waking moment of the day? Cell phones for kids is just an extension of helicopter parenting. Kids are safer than they've ever been. Let go a little.

OH ALawd a Black Hood Family Complaining? How about when you precious 9 year old son is going to get arrested for carjacking or selling crack, will you also complain to the media? I wanna know how old this "grandmother" is, im guessing it goes along with the white trash route of having kids at 16 being grandmother at 32.
 
2011-02-08 09:14:35 AM
Unbelievable. Whoever sent the message will probably end up being a convicted felon/ sex offender. Parental responsibility? Nope, give a 9 year old a cell phone, don't disable any features, and then, when your child does see something bad, instead of turning it into parenting and life lesson time, you call the police.

Thank you. Seeing a 7-year-old (yes, really) with a cellphone makes me stabby. My theory is that any kid under 13 (at least) doesn't need a phone because I know where they are all the time anyway.

oh so many things to comment...
ok, to the folks who are commenting on a 9yr old having a cell...well maybe you still think its 1995 when phones were expensive?, newsflash their not anymore, if you have a family plan its probably about $20/mo. kids are expensive and 20 beans aint really a big deal, if your tech savvy that phone can be monitored by gps, the bill payer gets to see ALL calls, texts etc. you can tell the twerp that when I text you, you call me immediately, no call, no phone and no more freedom, really a phone like that is a tether and cheap insurance.

...
ok...
now..

what the Frack kinda name is "Ty'Ge"? that isn't a name or a even a word. do you really need to kneecap the kid and make it even harder to get a job? oh and is his hair in those ridiculous "corn rows"? has he got a neck tattoo yet? c'mon... rename him Ralph, Bob or Jimmy or something.

jeez...

My kids and all their friends have phones and there is only one of these neighborhood kids whose mother uses it to helicopter parent him. She called for updates every thirty minutes! This has been going o. Since they were about nine (12 and 13 now). Had a talk with her told her to lighten up, they are twelve not two, need to learn some independence, etc. Don't call my son's phone unless the creep doesn't come home for dinner on time (my only real rule) otherwise I let him be twelve. None of us ever died because mommy wasn't in the yard supervising....

News flash! Not every place kids go have phones. My daughter loves to go fishing. I gave her a phone so she could call me when she's ready to come home. It's hard to ride a bike with a couple rods and a bucket of fish. She's never used more than 30 minutes a month.

They have the rest of their lives to choose to be bound by technology, captivated by computer screens while they slowly develop a hunch from their desk (hi, we are Fark). My nephews got ahold of an Ipad and haven't done shiat since. When these kids who tether themselves grow up asking 'what is a hammer?' or unable to communicate whenever they don't have any bars, we will know when it started. lojack the damn kid and kick his ass outside to play.

Absolutely I do, though not in way that is demeaning. I think it's actually a very sad thing, that we are losing entire generations of people who could make valuable contributions to society, yet they seem to be stuck in a vicious cycle of single-parenthood and violence.

Avoiding that reality by subtly implying that anyone who points it out is somehow racially motivated only helps to perpetuate the situation.

I wonder how many great doctors, scientists, artists, and leaders never get the chance to fulfill their destiny because endemic poverty, violence, and the attitude that bastardy is the norm (which is correlated to the first two problems) prevents them from flourishing academically and socially to their full potential.

It's a farkin' crime.

If your kid "needs" a cell phone at age 9, you really need to re-evaluate your kids life and how you're raising them.

If you're tethering that tightly at that age... you can kiss learning any sort of responsibility goodbye.

THIS is why kids lack any independence these days. Stop blaming tap water, science education, or one of the past 5 presidents.

These are the same kids now in their early 20's and their mom comes into their job interview with them (FWIW THIS HAPPENS).

His name sounds like something out of Star Wars. Maybe the article should read like this:

WBBH-VN UPdated Via VidNets

updated 42/7.2/211 ABY 11:47:41
Share Print Font: Bothawui: A nine-year-old Bothan recieved a pornographic photo sent to his cell phone of a Rodian performing a sex act on a Hutt. We spoke to the boy and his grandmother and found out the excuse the Hutt on the other end of the commlink had for pressing send.

Ty'Ge Dav'is is at the top of his class third grade class.

"I am the most advanced in my class," he said.

But he is not advanced enough to see the text messages being sent to his commlink.

Someone sent Ty'Ge a picture of inter-species activities on a couch.

"I was like, 'What is this?' I ran in the house and showed my mom," he said. "That was just too old for me. I wasn't ready for that."

"I am like let me see that text and I am like wow," his grandmother Dor'ote Mo'rre said.

Ty'Ge says he texted the number back and told the Hutt he was only nine-years-old, but the Hutt sent another text. 'Sweets patogga, ah-koh tee womp rat e'nachu, Kee baatu baatu!'

It's their own damn fault for giving him a phone without any restrictions. Receiving calls/texts by mistake will always happen. My teens have phones, and I have phone calls and texting restricted to only those people I want them talking to or I approve of, and they have no data plan. Their computers go through a proxy, which captures a screen shot every second if it detects any words that are inappropriate, and everything they type is recorded in a key logger. Their computers also lose network access at bedtime, and they do not get it back until after school the following day.

I have no problem with the kid having the phone, especially in today's busy world. I do have a problem with leaving it open to the world.

No, it's not that hard. I did it. So did my friends. I also rode that same bike to school all the way through eighth grade, regardless of traffic, weather or anything else. All without benefit of a cell phone.

Here's a thought: if you're that concerned about your daughter going fishing, go with her.
