Is your kid ready for a cellphone- (3)

“Is my child ready for a cell phone?” “Am I ready to parent a kid with a phone?” “How can I be prepared for everything that can happen once my child gets his first cell phone?” Getting a phone – or any connected device – for your child is huge turning point. It can be hard to know when the time is right, and most importantly, how to prepare for it. Mentorship is crucial. Teaching your child to make good decisions and to know when to get help is sets them up for a lifetime of successful digital communication. Give your child a chance to learn, let him practice making plans via text message on a family or shared device, and let him know which skills are most important to demonstrate… before you buy him that phone.
