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.
