At what age is it okay to get your child a cell phone?
I think 6th grade is the youngest I would be willing to go in order for my child to have a cell phone. Why is that you ask? Well here's why.
Believe it or not early usage of cell phones is linked to lower academic level due to poor reading comprehension and weak writing skills
Early cell phone use is also linked to behavioral problems
It can also affect your social skills.
