50 years is too young for a smartphone.

My 5yo has one to himself.

Think I want jelly fingers on my phone?

Mathgeekjoe: And your reason for this is....?
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-16T11:13:54.2672746-05:00
Because if you live to 100, half you life is after the age of 50, before the halfway point of 100 years you are too immature to use a smartphone.

Again, just using my son as the model here. I see NO reason to restrict his access to... Well much of anything. Why would I?

TBR, I hope " I see NO reason to restrict his access to... Well much of anything. Why would I?" is sarcasm.
TBR says2015-04-16T13:13:16.1520246-05:00
Mathgeekjoe - No. The question can get taken a fair number of directions, but I have no interest in limiting my sons exposure to much of anything. I wouldn't let him pickup a charged capacitor without telling him (happened to me), or... I don't know, experiment with lasers without proper supervision, but no. I will not limit him.

At some point we will have some issues with "blocking" some internet content, but I hope that will be mostly unnecessary.

Beeb Beep troll detected, this is not a drill.
TBR says2015-04-16T13:39:09.0013380-05:00
@komododragon8 - That is not directed at me, is it?
komododragon8 says2015-04-16T13:53:02.5585267-05:00
Nah it was directed at Mathgeekjoe for his quote "Because if you live to 100, half you life is after the age of 50, before the halfway point of 100 years you are too immature to use a smartphone."
