Well,people think of the advantages first of phones.For example:
-Can tranquilize or keep babies busy so they won't be disturbing
-Needed for work.
-Needed for emergencies
-Easier to chat,call
-Addicting games to be downloaded
-People(kids) have no time no play outside the house(because of school,weather etc.) See More▼

I find it wrong for little kids to waste away their childhood on electronics, but I do see why they have phones. Easy communication between them and their parents which leads to a certain type of independence.
However, there really is no excuse for when you go over to your friend's house and they are typing away on their phone.

It's ridiculous how toddlers have phones! How does that even make sense! It's a TODDLER! They probably will put the dang thing in their mouth! I'm entering seventh grade and I STILL don't have a phone! This is what I think the rule should be: If you are in preschool to second grade, no phone for you! Third grade to fourth grade, a simple phone. Fifth grade and older, smart phone!

well a phone can b a good thing and a bad thing. its a good thing b cuz u can communicate with friends and family easily. but the bad thing is that some people get too addicted to their phones, so they don't have any time to do anything else. a lot of little kids have phones now and its not healthy for them to be addicted at such young age. they should b playing outside or something instead of staying inside on an electronic. no one should use their phone for hours and hours at See More▼

I have one so I can stay in touch with my parents. My mom lives in a different state and my parents want me to be safe if I'm walking by myself. There are a few reasons why I have a phone. 1. When I was younger, I got locked out of my own house in the middle of a snow storm. My step dad had been working night shifts so he was asleep. (Note: The door bell didn't work and knocking got me nowhere.) 2. There are 2 registered sex offenders near my house, so if I'm walking by myself, See More▼
