Cell Phones for Kids

Parents are concerned about what type of cell phones that is suitable to be given to their children. There are number of reasons why they want to provide the best cell phones for their kids. Cell phones are meant to be the medium to communicate easily between both the parents and the kids. However, kids tend to have a different set of issues with handling the cell phone itself as well as making the most out of the cell phones. Unfortunately, the cell phone markets for kids are not as gigantic as the cell phones for business and adults. Therefore, it is hard to find the right cell phones for kids.

First of all let’s take a look at few questions that parents should ask themselves first before deciding to buy a cell phone for their kids:

- What is the main reason you want to give your child a cell phone?
- Have you trained your child about responsibilities that he or she should take once he or she gets the cell phone?
- Have you thought about the issues that might arise after you get your kids a cell phone?
- When would be the times your kids can use the cell phones?
- Do your kids spend most of their times at school?

Based on the feedbacks I received from parents, I have concluded that there is one important reason why they gave their kids cell phones. They want to provide their kids a secure and easy-to-access way for the kids to contact the parents during emergencies. This is the main factor. For instance, if you regularly pick your children from school, you want them to be protected all the time while waiting for you to arrive. You want to ensure that they inform you in any circumstances where they are and what are their activities.

Getting a cell phone for your children is an easy task but the real task is to teach them the responsibility to take care of the cell phone. You have to teach them not to abuse it in any possible ways. The kids have to learn how to use the cell phone in a good manner and they must also learn the reasoning behind giving them one. There’s no point giving the kids a cell if it simply because they ask to have it.

Why would your kids ask for cell phones? Well, it’s all about influence. There are families out there who can afford to provide their children with cell phones for no apparent reasons whatsoever. So when your kids see their friends with cell phones, they would also want to have one.

A child is a child and they normally acts like a child should. Seeing another friend of his or her toying with their cell phone, probably a smart phone like Android cell phone or even iPhone triggers that feeling of wanting to have one of his or her own. They know how expensive that gadget is, yet the urge to hold one and the excitement of keeping one in their pocket has clouded their judgment.

Well, it happens to us adult too :-) Get what I mean?

So is it good to give my child a cell phone? I mean a real cell phone?

Yes and no.

Why don't you make a list of both pros and cons of giving a cell phone to your child?

If pros reasons are way more than the contras, then save some bucks and give them a durable cell phone - a decent one but not necessarily expensive one. While saving your money to buy that cell phone, tell your child that you are saving some money so you can buy a cell phone for them. Tell them how you come to your decision and how hard it is to keep some money to buy his or her needs. Let them know that you know and you do care.

On the other hand, if cons are more, you may choose not to buy one for your child. However, keep in your mind that the list you made is relevant during the time you prepared it. Reasons might change as time flies. Spend some time every month to re-check the list. Add in new things in either sides; or minus any that are no longer relevant. At the same time, stash some of your money away every month as preparation; just in case if one day the weight is more to pros, then by the time you may already have enough money to buy one cell phone for your child.

Remember; you are not just buying a cell phone for your kid, but you also have to keep maintaining the bill. This may also be a time for you to decide which cell hpone plan you would like to subscribe; prepaid or post-paid? That calls for another discussion another time but you may look around ask around. Somebody somewhere knows what is best and probably has the right experience to share with you.

Should I give my child an Android cell phone? Why not, if you have the moolah. Spend your time around cell pohne shops; ask the phone promoter the goods and bads of any phone you are interested in. Find out if it's good for your kid (not for you!). An android phone has all the features people want today; calling and receiving calls, sending and receiving text messages (SMS), exchanging multimedia message or pictures, and you know what's the best part? They usually come with wifi feature. Your kid can go online and access various things on his or her phone.

Buying an android phone for your child means you are giving your child the freedom to access social interactive websites such as Facebook. At the same time, they can access other things you don't want them to; so give it a super deep thought before you decide on buying one. Sure, you can block certain things but you can't block everything.

Okay, I'll buy an iPhone then for my son?

Whoa you must be one rich guy who likes to spoil their children haha no I'm just kidding. Well, like I said earlier if you can afford it, by all means just go and get one for your son. Again, just like an Android phone, your kid can access the Internet and it is very hard for you to supervise everything they do.

Give your beloved child a gadget that is useful and good enough for him or her to facilitate everyone needs; efficient communication. I think that's the main reason why a cell phone was invented in the first place.

Later guys... :-)


  1. Every kid wants an I phone. Most parents do not want to spend that much money. Eventually the kid will win, but that does not mean that parents should not conduct a fighting retreat. Start with a cheap prepaid phone like a Tracfone, and then give ground slowly and grudgingly.

Can you make money from using Maxis Hotlink prepaid?

If you are a long time user of Hotlink, then I believe you have more than the knowledge on how Maxis charges you for anything and everything. Why waste the money for things you do not really need when you can actually earn money from it? You may not be as rich as Ananda Krishnan, the owner of Maxis Malaysia, but at least you can earn some money from all the telcos though you stick with Maxis Hotlink.

What if I use Celcom Xpax?

I know that sometimes you don't have the courage to try switching from one service to another. You might say that you are not sure about the advantages of other phone plans or network. Frankly say, that unsure feeling is just something you developed inside you due to successful marketing strategy from Celcom. Either using Celcom Xpax or Blue, it won't matter and you don't have to worry much if you plan to switch to Hotlink or Digi. Remember, at this time the cost to change or transfer is still free and therefore take advantage of that. Change and try it for a month and then you can always change back to your original provider. However, as far as money is concern, go for package that offers you lower call rates and that will absolutely help you to earn more money when you join Mymode.
