Cell phones and kids

My 7-year old and recently had the following conversation...

Daughter:  "Mom?  When can I have a cell phone?  Like how old do I have to be?"

Mom:  *pause to carefully consider my words*  "You can get a cell phone at the same age as I was when I got one."

Daughter:  "How old were you?"

Mom:  "Twenty-four."

Daughter:  "MOM!!!"

Later she said she was hoping for an answer with a "-teen" in it.  I said we'd consider it when she was older.

Too funny! My daughter is 2 and was crying because she wanted my IPod Touch yesterday. Full blown temper tantrum and screaming "phone!!!!" It's crazy how early they decide they want things!

my oldest daughter is 12 years old and she just got a phone for Christmas. It was a tough decision. So many of her friends already had phones.... :-) Good luck..

My friend had the same conversation with her 7 year old and your dd is lucky... my friend's son was appalled that his Mom hadn't had a mobile phone until 40 ;)
