What age should a child get a cell phone is a HOT parenting debate. There are many pros and cons to getting kids cell phones. One benefit to getting your child a cell phone at a younger age is that you can start having great conversations about responsibility with them at a younger age when they are still listening to you! No matter how old your kids or students are, there are some great conversations you can start having with them right now (today, even) to help prepare your child for their first cell phone. This is a list of conversations to have with kids about cell phone use and social media use even if they're not online yet! BONUS: There is a free, printable checklist of conversations to have with kids about cell phone use at the end of this post!
