in response to char6... If they have a "kids" phone then I think it would be a good idea with GPS. That being the key word or initials.Yeah, I admit I'm old school but I like the "modern marvels' myself. I was accused by an exwife of being a mother hen concerning her kids just because I wanted to have an idea of where they were, in case of an emergency.
Your dad sounds like my kind of guy, in fact we're probably close in age.
Oh, quick thought. If the parents would watch TV with their children and point out some of these things that go wrong and get them into trouble, it would help emphasize their point. Especially Law and Order SUV.
its the parents job to watch and know whats going on and although we have to work and other responsibilities, if we dont watch our kids, someone else will.
i loved your post! you are so old school!! its like listening to my dad talk, he can't stand or understand this generations need for electronics and devices. He gave me an earful on this matter already and reminded me how we never had cell phones growing up or gps and we turned out ok, he also tells me that he sent me to the school in our neighborhood and me "homeschooling" my kids is spoiling them, that I should let them fail in public school if thats whats gonna happen and let them deal with it..this "new age parenting" that goes on in our society disguists him..I tell him he is an oldschool grandpa with newage grandkids and while I am interested in what my kids think and feel it doesnt necessarily mean its going to make me change my opinion about something. I wasnt allowed to have an opinion growing up and i believe that having one is important, but it doesnt equate to decisions changing..as for my own daughter who will turn 9 on moday, she is too young for a cell phone. She really wanted one for her bday and my husand said "absoutely not". He frankly doesnt think much of our teens having them to be honest, because they use it mainly to keep in touch with their friends instead of us being able to reach them. I agree with Pittsburghmomma in saying that the phones should be preprogammed so that only the approved numbers can be accessed. I didnt know until recently that they had special phones for kids. Im still not sure that unless our situation changed, my daughter doesnt need one anytime soon. She is dropped off to school and goes directly into a math program after and is picked up by us from there. Its the only time she is away from us and why would she need to call us?
I also agree that the fee's for this service shouldnt be too costly.
I think one rate I checked is 10 dollars a month for about an hour of service, thats not too bad. The real question is if there is a true need for a phone or if its about want, as parents that is what we have to answer otherwise we are just feeing the childs desire to have things..
well that emptied my brain so gotta go, good talking to you and take care til next time!
The good points? I guess would be that the parents can check up on them, but if they lie how whould the parents know, If they get in some type of trouble and they think or are able to call someone that would be good but has to many variables. It gives them something to play with while in class or during study hall or in the halls.Good points The only good points that I can see is that it gives the parents ease of mind when they know they aren't watching them the way that they should. It use to be the TV, then video games, now cell phones.
If the parents love and treat their children half way decent by teaching them the same things that they have been taught then I think the kids would be in no more danger than it was when we were kids. In fact with all the new gagets it could be the reason that more kids are being found dead, if they are found at all.
