Kids and Smartphones

Miriam Slozberg

Kids are typically between 10 and 12 years old when they get their first smartphone. Even though smartphones are great for keeping families connected, they also require a lot of responsibility. That being said, parents need to be aware of the potential danger associated with their children’s exposure to smartphones, including cyber bullying, child predators and invasions of privacy among other hazards. As it is parents are responsible for teaching their children the rules of the road and proper driving etiquette, they also should be responsible for teaching their children how to navigate the online world in a safe manner.

This guide will help parents know when their children are ready for the responsibility of a smartphone, how to establish the ground rules that will keep them safe, and how to keep an eye on their online behavior. If parents understand their responsibilities when it comes to allowing their children to have smartphones, it’s more likely their children will understand their responsibilities when using smartphones and other types of devices.
