Mom, when can I get a phone?

For an upcoming story on kids and cell phones, writer Kristin Davis would like to  speak with area parents, family counselors and others about when it’s wise to give a child a cell phone. Are phones ever really necessary, or are they just toys? Is there a magic age when a child is responsible enough to have one? How can parents set smart boundaries for children’s cell phone use?

If you have experiences or opinions to share about these questions and more, please get in touch with Kristin by sending her an email at Thank you!
