When a Kid Needs a Cell Phone

When should you give your child a cell phone and what rules should you use with your child? We discuss how to determine when you child is ready and what expectations you should set up with your child.  Check out one mom’s contract with her son.

NOTE:  Since we recorded this show, Bill Gates, the creator of Windows and Microsoft and a god in the technology world, has stated that he gives his children a cell phone at 13 on a limited basis.  So, Nancy chatted with her son and let him know that she isn’t the mean miserly mom.  If the man who can give away 260 BILLION dollars makes his kids wait until they are 13, Nancy is sticking to her guns!
