Why do parents buy a mobile phone for younger children?

According to Child Guide Magazine, it is normal for parents to buy a mobile phone for their children as early as six years old. Some parents think that if their young children have their own mobile phone they can also use them as tools to stay in touch with friends and family.

Buying younger children with their first cell phone doesn't mean it has to be sophisticated. A basic phone that does not include Internet access for educational websites for kids, a camera, games, and texting capabilities is all they will need at first. Parents should set limits on the number of text messages children can send or receive and the number of minutes children can use the cell phone. Following a few basic guidelines will ensure a happy mobile phone experience for parents and children.

During a survey conducted by , 2,290 American parents were interviewed. Of the parents 31 percent said they bought a mobile phone for security reasons so that their child could always contact the parent in case of emergency. Another 25 percent cited calling other family members was the main reason. Another 20 percent said that they could keep the lines of communication open with their friends at school.

Matthew Wood of said, “The fact that most six year old kids have cell phones in their pockets while out on their bikes or playing with their friends show just how much technology is part of our lives at a young age.” He also explained, ”… but it's crucial that they use this technology in a way that doesn't affect their normal social skills and growth.” 

Once parents make the decision to purchase a mobile phone for their children, parents should also establish some basic rules that both parents and children will follow. For example, if the parent decides that children shouldn't use a mobile phone during meal times, parents also should set the example and not use a mobile phone during family meals and gatherings. Parents should teach good behavior while using a mobile phone. Kids need to learn how to use the mobile phone respectfully. For example, they should not forward photos without the permission of other people, nor should they have personal conversations in public places.
