Re: Kids and Cell Phone from Ex
      03/19/12 07:55 PM

When my YSS was younger his Mom got him a cell phone and we didn't agree with it being at our home. My husband was the CP. We made rules for the cell phone and if my YSS didn't abide by them then he wasn't allowed to bring it into our home.

1st rule was that we were NOT responsible if the phone was lost or 'stolen'. We didn't buy and didn't want it so we wanted NO responsiblity for it. 2nd was that there were limits to using hte phone. It was not allowed to be used while we had family time and it had to be on the counter at bed time. We also reserved the right to check the phone at any time.

In our siutation it was a bit different. My YSS recieved a new phone about once a year, sometimes twice. His Mom would buy a plan but within a couple of months the plan was turned off due to nonpayment. This was before texting.

We still have similar rules in our home for cell phones for anyone under age 18. When we decide one of the kids are ready for a cell phone the rules and conquences are known. We are going out this week to get YS15 his own cell and add him to our plan. IMO it is a want not a need. It is not a hard fast rule on when someone (in our home) gets a cell phone.
