A special treat for us was to hear from Portable Radio listeners, Emma, Martha and Thomas who give us their feedback and some suggestions for future shows. They have even prepared a piece about how to get along with siblings which will be played on a future show.
This week 5/6JS and 5/6NT read an article about a cell phone company in Europe that is marketing its phones to 5 year old kids. We read the article and watched several news stories about the issue of when children are old enough to have their own cell phones. Listen to hear our opinions on the subject.
