I cannot believe my little baby is a teenager! I remember him being a cute little blonde-haired baby just like it was yesterday. Now, Kyle is 13, and just started 8th grade. He no longer has those silky, curly blonde locks and he is actually taller than I am. Time sure does fly, and kids grow up way too fast.
I remember being a teen with a very busy schedule myself, so I can understand his desire to have a SmartPhone. There will be tons of activities he will be participating in, and he also likes spending time with his friends. Of course I am one of those Moms that always has to know where my kids are and what they're doing. If he says he will be at a friend's house, I talk to the parents first. (Which I am sure he hates me for, but it definitely keeps him out of trouble!)
But sometimes, Kyle and his friends go to the park. Without a cell phone, he cannot call and keep me updated on what they're doing or contact me should an emergency arise. So while I said I wouldn't do it, I am really considering getting him a SmartPhone. The problem is, these can be incredibly expensive, and I don't want to rack up hundreds of dollars of cell phone bills every month.
Thankfully, Republic Wireless has super affordable plan that offers unlimited service for only $19 a month! Here are some details for you about this great offer:
The Motorola DEFY™ XT Smartphone:
What do you get from your $19/month? All the talking, texting and surfing you can handle. And you get those things without a contract, without limits and without overages. Now that’s a smartphone plan that’s just smart!
Do your kids have cell phones? How old were they when they got their own phone? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
My boys have been wanting a cell phone for years. I always figured once they got to about 7th grade I'd consider it because they'd start staying after school for practices and things like that. Though I'm actually considering it this year because this is the first year my oldest son walks to school. I was thinking it might be nice for him to have a regular cell phone so if it's lightening or they get out early or he has a big project he needs to bring home that I could go pick him up. I don't think a smartphone just yet. I could see him getting into trouble with that but maybe a regular cell phone

My son just started middle school. I'm looking for a inexpensive plan that offers parental controls. He only needs the phone for emergency purposes. No texting, etc. Calls in and out from select family members.
