When Should You Allow Your Child to Have A Cell Phone

This is a very common question from parents. I know my wife and I had to answer this question not too long ago.

Funny thing is, that our parents, and our parents, parents, didn’t have to answer this question. I find that fascinating. But our world is different now.In more ways than one.

Makes me wonder the type of questions they will have to ask themselves as parents 20 or 30 years from now. I can’t even imagine.

In this video, Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson from Seattle Mama Doc talks about when we should allow our children to have a cell phone.
