If your child had a cell phone, you could send him a text or call him to see where he is or make sure he was aware of a change of plans. Parental surveillance is one of the most important reasons parents  consider buying their children a cell phone. Your son or daughter will also feel more secure and protected knowing you are there, on the other side of the line, especially in case of an emergency. Undoubtedly it´s very convenient for your children to have one but  but nowadays a cell phone is not just a phone. It takes pictures, entertains and is a social tool. Every child wants one and increasingly at a younger age.  According to the Kaiser Family Foundation,  69% of 11-14 year olds and 31% of kids aged 8-10 have cell phones. Experts say that having a cell phone isn´t a question of age, but of necessity. Does your child really need a phone? Is he prepared to have one?
