Technology, particularly telecommunications technology, has come such a long way. Back then, I remember, we used to have to ready our stash of coins, line up and wait our turn to use the public phones. Then the phone card was invented, that made things a bit easier. I used to hog our home line for hours and hours talking to my then darling other half. Then I'd have to pretend to act nonchalant whenever the phone bill came. These days though, many kids actually have their own mobile phones. How easy they have got it and how times have changed!
There are certainly pros and cons when it comes to letting your child have their own mobile phones. It's good for safety purposes and is a good way to keep track of their whereabouts. On the other hand, it can encourage materialism and you can find that they are on their phones 24/7 and running out of credit faster than you can say running out of credit!
