Dd got an iPhone for Christmas. She's 5 years old. The reason? I want to be able to have face time with her and so does her dad and we are both about to leave the country. If she wakes up in the middle of the night and face chat...

I love the rules/idea.
I had a beeper after high school and a car phone in high school.
Nowadays, it's a good idea to get children accustomed to technology and it's etiquette.
I got my son a tablet for Christmas and I limit his time on it.
My nephew's school is doing their work on an ipad. Might as well give them a "leg up".
