Season 2 P.O.V. #7 [3:10]

CBC’s Ottawa Morning aired this P.O.V. on March 19, 2008.

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.

Here are our sources:

  • article about a cell phone for 5 year olds by Susan Merkle, M.D.
  • CBS (KTVA11) video about cell phones being allowed in middle schools
  • Kevin Leman’s, PhD, video about what ages is appropriate for children to have cell phone
