A friend of mine sent this to me. Would especially like to hear from those of you who are parents.
There are points with which I agree 100 percent, and some that are sort of anachronistic. In my opinion, the correct way to go about children and cell phones is to buy them a nonsmart phone when they become old enough to need to call you for rides from places, etc., and then to later upgrade them to a smartphone with actual functionality if you think they're worthy of it. (This should happen at the age of 17 or later.)
