Is-Your-Tween-Ready-for-a-Cell-Phone-MainPhotoLos Tweens Logo-New

Let’s face it, if you’re a tween parent- you’re in the midst of cell-phone DRAMA! From deciding whether they are ready for one to whether you need your child to have one to concerns over how they are or will use the phone or who communicates with them- you’re in it. And the scariest part is while you may decide to purchase a phone for your tween to better control or manage your communication with them- that very need can lead to less control and more access to them by others.

I recently participated in an interesting survey presented by Sprint Latino that aimed to find out more of the purchase drivers that Latinas are considering when purchasing cell phones for their children. My interest was to continue better understanding the risks and solutions presented by giving my children access to a fully functional phone as until now they are using a wifi tablet or an ITouch with no phone access.
