how many drinks have you had ? your 6 yr old may want one to play games as he sees adults glued to it. kindly explain to him that when he gets big and has a job to do then he will get one and use it properly , and bh his classmates do not have phones even if some told him so … 6 yr old’s should drive bikes , play w balls & lego tatty sit down and play w himFebruary 27, 2020 7:32 pm at 7:32 pm #1836156lowerourtuition11210Participant
the word “NO” is still in the parent dictionary. you dont have to give your 6 year old an explanation.February 27, 2020 7:34 pm at 7:34 pm #1836164pro geshmake yiddenParticipant

I find it hard to believe this story.
My son in Seventh Grade in an out of town school has a good number of classmates who do not have a phone/iPod/iPad/etc.February 29, 2020 7:12 pm at 7:12 pm #1836316interjectionParticipant
A few points about 6 year olds.
If they see one kid has something then in their head, it can be the whole class.
Your kid doesn’t need a phone until the school says he needs one.
If my kid were going home on the school bus, I would give my kid a phone even though shes only 6. I would even give my 3 year old a phone if he was going home on the school bus. But that’s just because I’m neurotic and not something you should do if you dont want to.March 1, 2020 9:34 pm at 9:34 pm #1836696SpeltchallahParticipant
Funny that you can you use being “neurotic” as an excuse for anything these days…..
