Katarina is nine, and she doesn't have a cell phone. In fact, her parents don't even have smart phones (I know, we are pretty much the last people in the country to make that switch). But Katarina is well aware of smart phones. Every kid in every tv show is texting up a storm, and she has noticed.
We are not ready to make that leap right now. But one day, it is going to happen, and I like being prepared for things before they happen. I also know that the dangers of cell phones aren't about using too many daytime minutes anymore. The issues that kids face today when it comes to mobile phones are things like: bullying, privacy, over-usage, and texting while driving.
