Well, we finally did it. We got Gillian our 8 year old daughter a cell phone. We of course added her to our line, so it is only 10 extra a month, and of course she will be doing extra chores around the house.
She thought she was all big and bad, texting me hi over and over again. When her daddy got up and seen her phone he flipped the script on her. Made it into school work LOL. So daddy has been texting Gillian back and forth with big words, and getting her to read them.
So it is a win win, need to help your children with reading, get them a cell phone with unlimited texting and text away with them. LOL
