Should Your Teenage Have A Cellular Phone?


The time has come and your teenager has asked for one but you're not sure if you should supply one or not. No were not talking about a car. This is the digital age we mean the cellular phone. Perhaps no other decision has caused so much alarm and grief (aside from a credit card) then if you should give your teenage their own cellular phone. The cellular phone companies would advocate for allowing your teenage the use of a cell phone. And certainly there is merit to that suggestion. After all teenagers can use the cell phone in times of emergency such as breaking down on the side of the road or needing a ride home. Don't forget that nearly half of today's teenagers already have a cell phone. Leaving your teenager without one could affect their cool factor with their friends and other teenagers. There probably exist many other emergency situations in which your loved one would need a cell phone.

Unfortunately many teenagers seem to think there is always a crisis going on and ultimately end up using their cell phone for almost everything to include calling and text messaging their friends in no time flat. They may even call you every once in a while. This can result in their using all of the minutes allowed in the cheap, just for emergencies calling plan you selected before the month is halfway over.

For this reason many parents are advocate the use of prepaid cellular phones for teenagers. With a prepaid cell phone, the phone comes loaded with a set number of minutes when you buy it. You add more calling minutes as you need them. There's no annual contract or monthly bills to worry about.
