How young is too young to have a smartphone? A Smartphone is so powerful;l connecting people to people all over the world but how young is too young to be that connected through sleek apps, social media and video messaging?
Tim Farnum is leading the charge on a proposed ballot initiative in Colorado that would be the first of its kind in the country. Farnum’s proposal would ban the sale of smartphones to children younger than 13, or more likely, to parents who intend to give the smartphone to kids in that age bracket.
I can understand why this group has started, kids do need to put the phones down now, that being said.
I do think that preteens should have a phone on them, but one that is basic and can only call the police and of corse the parents for emergencies
