Teens and phones...



It's inevitable.  It WILL happen.  Your child will have his or her own phone.  Independence.  Access.  What we as parents may consider a privilege, our children consider a necessity.  How can we as parents keep some kind of control over the freedom that comes with a child having their own phone?  I think that Janell Burley Hofmman has a great place to start the conversation with your child.  She outlines an iPhone contract that might come in handy for anyone to use as a tool in your own family.
