At what age should your child start using a mobile phone?


Do you think there is a specific age that is too young for a child to use mobile phone? I’ve seen people with children as young as three or four years old asking what phone would be best for their child. To each child of their own, of course, but I wouldn’t buy a child that young their own phone. Would you?

Children get hooked on screens so easily these days that I just don’t see the point of making it earlier and earlier. I’m not going to tell someone else that they shouldn’t do it, but I’m just curious about other opinions. Am I the only one that thinks a toddler is too little for his or her own phone? Maybe I’m just old school or just old.

What are your thoughts?
