A national debate has erupted about when children should have their first cell phone.
Which of the following gives the BEST argument for the prescribed age bracket?
Children at age 12 should have their own cell phone because it is an expected social norm.
Children at age 16 should have their own cell phone in case there is a driving emergency.
Children at age 6 should have their own cell phone to learn the applications they will be required of them later in life.
Children should have their own cell phone only after they can afford the plans themselves to ensure a level of responsibility.
Children of any age should have their own cell phone only when they are not in their parents’ or their school’s personnel’s presence.
