Times are just changing right before our very own eyes! I can remember when we were in high school and bringing cell phones or pagers were simply against the rules and means for suspension. Not anymore! It is not uncommon to see them out on the steps after school chatting and texting it up awaiting the arrival of their parents. These two were no different, bringing us to question our daily argument with our oldest (11 yrs.) as she wants one of her own!
To allow her to have a cell phone or not to have is the question. Often asking ourselves if we should give into the “Sign of the Times.” or stay loyal to our values and prohibit it, but to what age? I know I was 19 before I had my own cell phone and 14 when I got my first pager but who uses those anymore unless you are part of corporate America, perhaps we should poll this one!
