Kids should not have a cell phone, because they are traveling into a era that they do not fully understand. They will be immature with it, and not actually use it for any emergencies. Think about it for a second. A maniac/raper is chasing you with a knife. While you are running for your life, do you really have time to call 911. No! Because you are trying to get out of there! Let me give you another situation. You just got into a severe car accident, would you call 911 or home to get help? Well,...
