Let me start off by saying, the concept of kids with cellphones totally disgusted me and made me think parents lost their sanity for little kids to have them. I had to wait til I was moved out to get mine lol My daughter is going into 5th grade talking about this girl’s cell was going off in class, my nieces have them that are only a year or two older than her, text me all the time etc. AAAAAA insanity! BUT now, of course, she’s asked me for one. Auto-pilot answer was oh HECK NO, But, she has told me in the past (before she wanted a cell phone) that she “doesn’t have the guts to ask her dad” if she can call me when she wants to. I have shared custody of her and so weekends she is with her dad and her step mother who are very angry controling people. I have had to threaten to call the police before to get them to put her on the phone once. Hearing her say she feels she has to have “the guts” to ask him concerned me. She’s even talked about wanting to sneak out after bedtime to the phone when they are asleep to call me. So, this is the only reason I’m tossing the idea around. And, she got a ton of bday money for her 10th that I told her she’d have to use to buy the phone and prepay time and what not. I’ve found a few phones online that are geared towards kids, with PIN #’s and parental controls that limit the calls in and out, and the times that calls are ABLE to come in and out (like during school, after bedtime, during meals, etc), and the “chaperon” GPS location for parents to locate their child whenever they need to. She’s a wonderful student, in Advanced Studies, honor roll EVERY quarter for 3rd AND 4th grade at least. So, before I try to make her dad think it’s a good idea, and that it’s HIS wonderful idea so that he can call her any time she’s here (he wont say yes to anything that’s my idea or he can’t control in some way, shape, or form) I wanted to get some opinions. Polite only please. This way, also, her step mother (who is a horrible conflict starter…aka drama queen) wouldn’t have to have run ins every time I try to call. Do you think it’s too young? And before I hear about how her dad and I just need to get along, we’ve been broken up for 9 years, go through court, counseling, and all that jazz. We have a domestic violence history, so the fact that we can have a conversation at all is, unfortunately, probably the best we can get for now, but every day I work towards that whole situation getting better for my child’s sake. So, for now, this is the way it is.
Thanks, and yes I meant prepay, or pay as you go not a monthly plan or anything crazy. They have tiny little packages with parent controls, like FireFly, that I was going to have her pay for with her bday money for a month trial. The “guts” cause her dad freaks out at her over everything and yells about everything.
