Parents, why in the world do you think your elementary or possible middle school child needs a cell phone.
We did just fine growing up with out them.
If you just canâ€™t say no to your child and need some will power, let me give you some very alarming news.
It is the bright shiny object, it will capture their attention for a while, but when it does no interest them anymore, they will want the next new shiny object.
School age children are already experiencing verbal and written communication skills challenge today. Throw in the texting and they are learning to write improperly. Teaching are already seeing test scores drop. They are also experiencing children who are having so much difficulty spelling words and writing. This is due to the fact they are using acronyms on their phone, more than they are writing down words in full sentence structure.
When they are on their phone, they are 10 times more likely to be involved in some kind of environmental issue. No I am not talking about running into a tree. I am talking about being assaulted by a stranger, hit by a car, etc.
So parents, do not go blindly into that the Good Cell Phone Purchase, Make the child wait.
