It is a debate among parents nowadays: At what age should I give my child a cell phone? For those of us who were born before 2000, we never had the luxury of a cell phone. If we needed to contact our parents, we had to either find a pay phone or somewhere that would allow you to use their phone. For some of us, we had only one telephone in the house; it was attached to the wall with a long cord. There was virtually no privacy. Then came the cordless phone, which was a little better privacy-wise. And finally, the cell phone. Old cell phones were ridiculously huge and you could not do much with them. They were strictly designed to make phone calls. No more, no less. But today, cell phones are basically mini computers. Your entire life can be held in the palm of your hand; which can be a good or bad thing. But with the advancement in technology comes hidden dangers. And with every teenager having their own smartphone, those dangers escalate.
