Phones and Kids
What do you think about the cell phone issue being discussed regarding our children? I remember when cell phones first came out. Children were not even allowed to own one. Now everyone has one. Even children in the lower elementary grades have one. It is really scary for us as parents of young children. Not knowing what our children are exposed to is really unsettling. The sites they can get into can be awfully dangerous. On the positive side, cell phones enable us as parents to feel a sense of safety, knowing where our children are. we can get a hold of them whenever we need to and they can get hold of us, too. So, here’s the big question, how do we maintain control of how much our children use their phones. What apps and internet sites are safe for them? It feels to me like technology has taken away some of our parental rights. What do you think?
