TODAYS MOMMY MOMENT BELIEVE IT OR NOT IT IS NOT A AGE THING IT IS ALL ABOUT THEIR LEVEL OF MATURITY AND RESPONSIBILITY..PARENTS KEEP IN MIND A CHILD CAN DO A LOT WITH A CELL PHONE IT NOT JUST AS SIMPLE AS TEXTING AND TAKING PICTURES THEY NOW HAVE A DIRECT LINE OF COMMUNICATION, PRIVATE ACCESS TO THE INTERNET AND SOCIAL MEDIA...WE HAVE TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN AT ALL COSTS WHAT THEY PUT ON THE INTERNET CAN BE A LASTING FOOTPRINT THAT CAN NEVER BE ERASED ....STAY WOKE
HERE'S CHECK LIST OF QUESTION TO ASK YOURSELF:
Do your kids show a sense of responsibility, such as letting you know when they leave the house? Do they show up when they say they will?Do your kids tend to lose things, such as backpacks or homework folders? If so, expect they might lose an (expensive!) phone, too.Do your kids need to be in touch for safety reasons?Would having easy access to friends benefit them for social reasons?Do you think they'll use cell phones responsibly -- for example, not texting during class or disturbing others with their phone conversations?Can they adhere to limits you set for minutes talked and apps downloaded?Will they use text, photo, and video functions responsibly and not to embarrass or harass others?
