With the first day of school looming on your refrigerator calendar, you must be asking yourself the same question every parent asks themselves: “Should I get them their first smartphone?”
And just like every other parent, here are the next thoughts racing through your head:
“Are they responsible enough, will it hurt their grades?”
“What if they break it?”
“What are they really going to use it for?”
“Are they just going to be on it all the time?”
“Can I afford it?”
I’m sure your internal debate went down a long list, but find comfort in knowing that you are not alone! I sat down with some parents who work here at TextNow and asked them a few questions about their experience with getting their kids their first smartphone.
