Here is my philosophy regarding cell phones and kids.
Until they are old enough to be somewhere on their own, without any adult supervision,
they don’t need one.
My 8-year-old does not need a cell phone.
My 7-year-old does not need a cell phone.
My 4-year-old sure as hell does not need a cell phone.
So when I clicked on this link yesterday,
the one that described a freaking mobile phone for 4-year-olds,
Why the hell would your four-year-old need a phone?
Who are the parents that are dropping their preschoolers off at the playground alone?
Have a nice time, Johnny. If a stranger tries to give you any candy while you are on the swings, just push that red button and give Mommy a call.
See you in 2 hours.
Okay, so it’s not just a phone.
It’s a watch, tracking device, and phone.
Designed by a dad who lost his kid at the mall (he found eventually found him).
It costs $200.
It would take all of 3 minutes for my kids to take that thing off and leave it somewhere.
So until they find a way to lock that mothereffer on like Lindsay Lohan’s ankle bracelet,
I’ll pass on the Get Smart watch.
If I really get desperate, I’ll do what any intelligent, overprotective and frugal mom would do…
I’ll make an appointment with the vet, and microchip those kids for twenty bucks.
