  • Tweens need their phones due to..

    Here are my supporting reasons why:
    1. I take the bus to school and you would most likely needed to walk to your bus stop, what if something happens to me on the bus or walking to the bus?
    2. Instead of bothering my parents, I would actually be busy doing something on my phone like texting my friends.
    3. My parents text me to make sure im doing okay all the time and get mad at me just because im not responding quickly, thats because my ipad is being super slow.
    4. This is the new generation, not the old generation.
    5. Having a phone is a huge responsibility, me having a phone will help me build up those skills.
    6. Obviously for some entertainment. Say if we are driving somewhere and it is a pretty long trip, we are in a waiting room, or just hanging out, I could just use my phone.
    7. So much kids have a phone at my age, I find it pretty embarrassing when you are the only person in the class who doesn't have one.

  • Kids should have a phone

    I am the only one in my class that hasn't got one. My parents wont me have one until I turn 12 and I just turn 11 a week ago and my birthday is at the end of the year so by the time i get one every one has already got one so that's not fair!

  • I would yes

    If a child is mature I see no harm in buying a phone so they can call parents family etc I wouldnt go out and buy a iphone etc for my son but a cheap basic one so he can learn responsibility and vaule of it as a laxuary x

  • What about emergencies?

    My daughter was around 11 years old when this happened to her. She was after school at a friend's house to work on an assignment. Her friend during the time had a seizure. The child's parents were not home, and my child did not have a cell phone to call 911. The family did not have a landline either. Luckily, my child was able to preform CPR and use the neighbor's landline to contact 911. Soon after I gave my child a smartphone.

  • I'm an 11 year old and I think I should have a phone because..

    1all my friends have one and they carry it around every were, do you know how dumb it looks to have a huge bulge in your pocket because your trying to stuff an iPad in there?!?
    2 you can use it for texting and calling, it's embarrassing having to use FaceTime and FaceTime audio, even when no one is around
    3 you have cell data on so you can watch things offline and you don't have to hunt for wifi
    4 phones have a way better camera than my iPad, and you can send the photos while your off wifi
    5 it has a llight and other way better built in features
    6 it has way more storage than my 16 GB iPad
    7 its pocket size
    8 it's so dumb and annoying when someone asks for your phone number and you have to give them an email address
    8 a phone is way faster and loads things more easily
    9 you can add a pop socket to a phone and it's helpful and it looks dope, but when you add a pop socket to an iPad, not only is it useless but it looks ugly and dorky

  • I think that kids that are 10-12 should have a iPhone.

    I go to other kids' neighborhoods to play and I need to contact my parents if any thing is wrong. Also they could call me to came back to my house for dinner or something like that. Next I might need to contact my friends for a homework assignment or when a project is due. I think that 10-12 year olds having a phone would be very useful for you and them.

  • I definitely think that kids that are 10-12 should have iphones.

    I go to other kids' neighborhoods to play and I really need a phone to contact my parents if anything is wrong. They could contact me if it is time for dinner or something like that. Also I could talk to my friends if I forgot a homework assignment or when a project is due. I think that 10-12 year olds should have an iphone because who knows maybe school will end early and he or she might need to call you to pick them up.

  • Half and half

    Kids should have phones when there young as they can contact their parents when something is wrong ... Although.... :
    1. They don't have as much responsibility as older children
    2. If they download social media strangers can send naughty things to them and then they wont understand it and probably do what these strangers ask them
    3. Kids need to be kids not to stare at their phone all day long they need to focus on the more important things in life like school and many other great things
    thank you :)

  • Phones for Tweens can promote inappropriate usage

    The usage of phones given as a privilege to tweens is unjust since these young kids still don't know how to differentiate the inappropriate uses of the phone. Sure, moderate game play and texting to your friends in moderate amounts are alright, but alot of tweens these days reside in the Instagram multiverse, a place where people get stalked, nudes are sent, people get cyberbullied, etc. Cyberbullying isn't a problem when you're a bit older, but for 10-11 year old kids, this may discourage them from schoolwork and they can possibly fail. When they either go to a school far away BY WALK or at least 30 minutes away by train or bus OR when they turn over the age of 14 and going to high school.

  • Kids that are within the ages of 9-12 should not have phones?

    Kids should go outside and play and have fun with their friends. I have seen kids with phones these days and theyre not paying attention to their surroundings. I am 13 and I have a phone, but I use it for calls and texts mostly. Kids who have phones basically have nobody to call, like who are they gonna call? Dora? One of my friend's little brother has a phone and its just sad how much time he spends on it. Some people are probably thinking "Well you're only 13 and you have a phone" Well I am responsible with my phone and I don't play games on it unless I am in the car and my parents need to talk about something that I can't know about so I put my earbuds in, listen to music, and play a game. Kids need to go outside and enjoy themselves.

  • Time well spent???

    As an adult, I've learned through time and experience how to prioritize my time, get my work done before leisure time, and to recognize addictive behaviors in myself and stop before I lose control. And yet, I often spend hours on facebook, or ignore a child's plea to read a book together because I want to get to the next level on a game I'm playing. Really, what's more important.
    Smart phone app usage can be addictive, and kids this young need to be protected from the risk. If adults struggle with this, then kids will have an even harder time.

  • Bob bob bob

    The fact I can get it right away with a lot more fun and I don't think that it was not immediately available to all of them in my head and the rest of the day before I get a follow back on my way home from work to be

  • Stop playing on phones

    Kids like me use to on phones when they could be outside enjoying the day they can play sport go to the park I am tired of these kids playing so I hid them for dear sake there eyes I always have to take them away. So don't even if they beg.

  • Make them earn it.

    I think that kids should not have phones, because they will break them and waste your money. They could have an IPod Touch which is less expensive and runs off of wifi. But you should make them earn the money for it by themselves. Then they will learn work ethic.

  • HI maya HAVE FUN

  • Kids need to be kids

    Kids need to be kids. They don't need to learn to stare at their phones all the time. They need to play, do homework, make friends with other kids - in person - learn how to be social. It's annoying to be introduced to someone's kid who barely looks up from their device and throughout the meal/event never participates in any form of being present in the situation.
